Windy City

Windy City

In April of 2018, I decided to go on a rare journey with my mother, to a convention she deeply wanted to attend, in Chicago. Considering I've been to Chicago several times in my life, but never with a camera as good as what I've got now, I had for the longest time been wanting to tackle some of the Windy City's fabulous sights...but here, on the 94th floor observation deck of the Hancock Tower, I finally got to see the city in all its sparkling glory at night. It's incredible what a sight something like this is. While walking through the city below, one is struck by how fast everything moves; life seems to sprint ahead as you are expected to move from point to point as expeditiously as possible, so as not to block traffic or miss a shop closing...but from above, everything feels slow and tranquil. The city glistens and twinkles with distant motion...and everything feels detached. This photo is the result of around 15 photographs stitched together, taken from two different sides of the Hancock Tower's observation deck. No tripods were allowed (so this was shot by stabilizing my camera directly against the glass!), and the glare on the windows was incredibly difficult to work around...but I think it turned out wonderfully.
