    The Chicago Tourism Board (or whatever it's called) should hire you, Leslie. This is another example of your stunning Chicago images - beautiful light, composition, perspective, etc.

I also agree with Lindley, I've often wondered if you market your photo's, they'd look great hanging in the buildings you photograph. Another stunning scene, Leslie!!

A perfect vertical shot of what makes Chicago such a magnificent city...agree with both Julie and Lindley - Time to locate an art gallery and "show (and strut!) your stuff" to the Windy City...as always, perfect work!
