One of the things I love most about doing the majority of my portrait work outdoors is that I usually find an opportunity, between sets, to capture some of the beautiful scenery my city has to offer. While on an engagement shoot downtown this past Saturday, I took a few minutes to capture two of the most well known buildings that help make up our skyline: the Smurfit-Stone building on Michigan Avenue and the Lake Point Towers at Navy Pier.
Chicago has some of the most recognizable, and I’ll dare say, unique buildings dotting it’s skyline. You don’t have to live here to recognize the Smurfit-Stone building, with it’s diamond shaped, slanted roof, making our skyline very recognizable in movie scenes panning along the lakefront. (it was most recently “destroyed” in one of the latest Transformers movies) Hit Navy Pier and the wonderfully wavy Lake Point Tower stands tall against the backdrop of your visit.
Chicago may have lost the bid for the latest Batman franchise (oh Christian…
I shall we will miss you) to Pittsburgh but no one can take away the fact that Chicago has one of the most beautiful lakefront skylines of any major city. (that’s a proven fact… no seriously… it is! What??)
Heading to NYC next week for a few days of nothing but photography (and excellent food) so be on the lookout for photographs from my second favorite city very soon!
