Photo of the Week: A Chicago Skyline Shot for the Road.

After a great week in Chicago recently I was in a cab to Union Station to head home. I figured I captured it all while in town, including getting lots of skyline shots, so I would just enjoy the ride. Should have known better.

It was rush hour heading towards the station from the south side, when we got caught in a traffic backup going over a bridge on W. Roosevelt Rd. I couldn’t believe the view. Another Chicago skyline shot with the Willis Tower front and center and the train tracks below getting ready to merge as they go towards Union Station.

Gotta keep the camera and/or phone always ready, you never know when a shot will present itself.

  1. As a former Chicagoan, I’ll never get used to calling the Sears Tower the Willis Tower. Perhaps in time. Don’t miss that Chicago traffic!

    • I called it the Willis when writing, but it will always be the Sears! Definitely agree on the traffic, though I’m a little more excepting of it on Lake Shore with all the great scenery around me to stare at. πŸ™‚

      • Oh, it’s always Sears in Chicago. But I hear you about writing, Aaron. And I agree about always having a camera handy, you never know when a photo op presents itself.

      • Yeah Willis will never catch on main stream. I hate when stadium names change too, many people still call them by their original names. Time to take a picture! πŸ™‚
