Chicago is a great city especially if you are an avid photographer like me. For my daily morning walk from the train station to my skyscraper office on the Magnificent Mile, I can basically walk a hundred different ways across the megalopolis of the city. I can walk pass the historical buildings of the financial district, into and out of the loop area, along the new Chicago river walk, through the River North area, down the Magnificent Mile of Michigan Avenue to my skyscraper office in the Gold Coast.

After trekking across the city five days a week for over 17 years, I've been able to snap thousands of photographs, originally with my pocket camera, now with just my iPhone. I decided to create a photo essay of some of my favorite snaps of my city, all in black and white.

Trump Tower Portico

James R. Thompson Building Atrium: a photographer's delight!
Financial District Architecture

Marina City Towers: also a photographer's delight.

I hope my photos give you an idea of what a joy the city Chicago is to photograph. I would really appreciate any feedback you could give me, positive or negative.
