Photo 1:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Streeterville Neighborhood

The two buildings superimposed here are the Palmolive Building (completed in 1929 and designed by Holabird & Root; foreground) and the John Hancock Building (completed in 1969 and designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill; background). In the lower left-hand corner, you can also see part of the Drake Hotel (completed in 1920 and designed by Marshall & Fox).

Location: Chicago, Illinois; River North

This is J’s Dawg & Burger in the River North neighborhood…a restaurant that serves, well…you get the idea. As for why I photographed it…well. Check out the name of my blog…if you can’t make the connection, I can’t help you. Also, the sign was kinda neat.

Photo 3:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Lincoln Park

The Chicago lake front has a number of willow trees all throughout Lincoln Park…these are some of those willows. I happen to like willow trees, as long-time readers may already know.

I’m not sure why these posts are in the Lake, but they are. I liked this shot because it illustrated pretty well how low the visibility was that day due to the massive amount of fog.

Photo 5:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Chicago Loop

This is the northwest corner of the Marshall Field & Co. Building (completed in 1902 (this section) and designed by D. H. Burnham & Co.), which occupies the entire block between State & Wabash, and Randolph & Washington; this shot was taken from the northwest corner of State & Randolph, facing the southeast corner. I am particularly enamored of the giant clock mounted on the corner of the building.
