A window washer works his way up Chicago's Lake Point Tower on an overcast day.

Lake Point Tower

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Chicago’s Lake Point Tower. My Grandfather-in-law was the architect. It sits right next to Navy Pier in Chicago. I think he designed it to embody the water, which it certainly was doing this day. There was a window washer working on it with a big American flag on his platform while I was taking pictures.

It seemed an appropriate image for the day.
