Around Chicago

24 posts in this topic

I was up in Chicago for a couple of days last week, and I absolutely loved the city. It was my first time in Chicago, and I hope to go back many, many times! I honestly don't see a single reason why you can't not like that city, it's just an awesome town. Anyway, here are about 60 of my photos from Chicago, most of them from inside the Loop. Enjoy! :)

I didn't have a tripod with me, so some of these night shots may be a bit blurry

A magnificent city. I can never get enough of Chicago. It's about a 3 hour drive from where I live so I try to get there as often as I can

Superb photos of the city's gems.

BTW, Zach, I fought that Chicago parking ticket and won.

I love Chicago. I absolutely LOVE it. Nate, your captures are awesome, my friend... awesome!!

FYI: I hope you do get your DSLR soon, but to be honest you don't even need it. Your Powershot puts out some powerful image quality. Wow!

Very professionally captured, and I mean that.

Great job Nate. Very impressive shots across the board. No wonder Chicago is a called the "birthplace" of the skyscraper. The Chicago River almost looks unreal flowing thru that urban jungle. Millenium Park looked cool too! How was going on top of Sears Tower>>still the world's tallest building IMO. No other building has actual floor level as high.

DC, Charlotte, New Orleans, Atlanta, and now Chi-Town. Very impressive travel resume this past year! Keep them urban photo's comin' :thumbsup:

That shot 5th from the bottom is perfect with the John Hancock Bldg. in the background.

Good stuff! I second that Chicago's a great city. I'm no fan of big, big cities, but if I had to pick one to live in, Chicago would get a hard look. It's a great place with a great feel, much more vibrant than I had ever thought. Oh! And I got some of those same shots (like the one looking northeast at the rest of the Loop + River North, etc.) from the Sears Tower, it's a great view. Glad you had a good time! I'm hankerin to go back again now...

Very nice. I see you visited both the Sears Skydeck and the Hancock Observatory. Which did you prefer?

Thanks for the replies, everyone! GRDad, I was very fortunate with the weather up there. Driving up I went through a ton of sleet in southern Illinois, but as soon as I got to Chicago everything cleared up. Those few days when I was there were supposedly some of the nicest that Chicago had seen all year. Perfectly clear and bright blue skies, temperatures in the upper 40's and low 50's, and a nice breeze. It was beautiful!

I finally remembered to check out your pics over here Nate. You got some great shots. While I've seen a number of Chicago pics you've got some unique perspectives in some of yours. Great job. :thumbsup:

Chicago with all of its architectual veriety is a very photogenic city to begin with. So anybody that knows a bit about photography automatically has a leg up.

Great Pics. I was in Chicago in October and I loved it. I can't wait to see the trump tower when its completed. It will add so much to the skyline.

Awesome photos, Nate! That last view of the skyline from the Adler Planetarium is one of my favorite views of any skyline anywhere. I can't wait to get up there with the new gear. It's an urban enthsiast's candy store. :shades:

Nice pics.

Lake Michigan is awesome. If you ever go in the summer, make sure you go swimming in it. Its cold, but refreshing.

Ive heard that you can see the chicago skyline fromthe sand dunes along the beach in extreme southwester Michigan. Tha would be a sight to see.
