Chicago is a special city. I grew up close by in NW Indiana. As a kid, Chicago was the big city I always got excited to visit. Now as an adult, I still get excited when going home to visit family. Especially if I get some time to explore and create some images. A couple weekends ago I went back home to celebrate my mom’s birthday and attend a BBQ competition my brother was in. He cooked up amazing ribs and got 1st place. The rest of the week I spent in the city. One highlight was that on Mondays the John Hancock Building Observatory (now called 360 Chicago) allows photographers to bring up and use tripods. Great way to shoot pictures of the city from 94 floors up. I’m excited to get back home again soon. Here are the images from up top the observatory. More images from the trip in a new Chicago Gallery.
