Chicago Temple Building

    Newer Older

    Church on top of a skyscraper?
    This is reduced by around 60 % - big panorama of stitched verticals again.
    The Chicago Temple building houses the First United Methodist Church, which is Chicago’s oldest congregation.
    The main church occupies the first 3 floors. This top portion has something called the "Chapel in the Sky." The senior pastor lives up there, from what I've been told, and has a private balcony. Very interesting to see this on top of a skyscraper.
    It was the tallest building in Chicago when it opened in 1924, but the Chicago Board of Trade Building was built a tiny bit higher in 1930.

      I posted one from some light painting I did down in the basement tonight. The color looks like crap.

      The sky is interesting. It almost looks as if the clouds are stacked vertically. Nice work.
