City views

Chicago really isn’t my kind of town. But, back in the summer of 2017 I was there once for a 23 hour layover between the Southwest Chief and the Empire Builder trains. Because of the height of the buildings it is hard to get a perspective to take a photo that gives a sense of being there. All of these were taken either beside or from on the water.

Walking along the river in the late afternoon.

The one tourist thing we did, aside from just walking around, was to take an architecture cruise. The following two were taken on that trip.

The reflections let you see both sides of the river.

Looking Up at Chicago

Interesting and dramatic, Chicago is a modern city with modern architecture, where you get a crick in your neck looking up at all the really tall buildings. I spent about twenty three hours there last summer on a train trip (our train arrived one hour after the connecting train left). I doubt we’ll ever go back.

My favorite “looking up picture is one I posted before:


This is York Minster, a photo taken in June of this year.
