One of my favorite style of pictures, are the same iconic images we see over and over again, but from a different perspective. For example, there are a million pictures of the Eiffel Tower in Paris taken on bright, blue-sky, summer day. We’ve all looked at those images, but I really like the different Eiffel Tower pictures taken as reflections off of windows, through alleys and such. Some of my favorite pictures were taken a half-mile away from the structure, showing life around the famous tower.
So enter the above picture of Chicago’s Willis Tower. This was taken about four-and-a-half miles from the building on a bright and beautiful May morning. It’s the same iconic Willis Tower, but with a very different looking Chicago in the foreground.
