The Chicago Fire

This is the magnificent view from the observation deck of the John Hancock tower. I had my tripod and everything ready to go but one of the employees told me that tripods are now banned. This was apparently do to some clumsy lady who had tripped on one before and sued the folks at the Hancock.

I did make the trip out to Chicago pretty much for the sole purpose of getting this picture so I was not going to be deterred. I not so sneakily hid the tripod under my arm and brought it up anyway . It didn't really matter though, several other folks where using tripods as well. This is my ode to Trey's original Chicago masterpiece.
