Historic Chicago building reflected in the windows of a newer building


Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Another shot from along the riverfront in Chicago. This time I was shooting through a flower bed at a new glass building which was reflecting what I think is the Mercantile Building across the river.

  • it looks like a (dream)scene where you peek out of the bush and see the reflection of an inanimate object(building) suddenly have life and make faces at you.. :) nice shot..

  • the flower bed colors add a lovely effect. when i saw the thumbnail i wondered if this was a reflection of the Vancouver Hotel in a glass building. i took a similar photograph to this without the flower bed. is there also a person entering the frame.
