It's an interesting study of lines, shapes and texture well seen and presented here. It must be one of the enduring and significant buildings of Chicago. Have a great evening too Ellen!

Nice capture! I was eyeing a neighboring window of this one probably, on our river walk, but couldn't find a sky or interesting building reflection; this is terrific!

I agree with the rest and also what no one mentioned yet is how we see the natural sandy and sepia tones of the sand stone and then of course I eyes are then drawn directly to the brilliant blue and white reflection that gifts this image with such beautiful contrast.

You have such a wonderful eye, Ellen. :)

Great find and job!!!
