The Sears Tower

The Sears Tower. 233 South Wacker Drive. Here is the big daddy of all big daddies. So big it has its own zip code. So tall you can see as many as four states from the Skydeck on a clear day. So high sensitive people experience motion sickness from the building's sway. Hail to the chief!

  1. Woah, that's UP there! I love your POV in this shot. The flags really make the image leap alive. Kudos.

  3. One of my favorite features about Chicago is its architecture and the Sears Tower is no exception. I love that the inspiration for the tower was a pack of cigarettes! How iconic and American is that?

  4. What a nice shot! I really enjoy visiting your blog every day. I've spent most of my life in Chicago, but I live in Michigan right now, so it's nice to go home once a day.

  6. Hi B.C. This week was another hectic one, so I’m sorry to have been a bit absent from here. Anyhow TGIF, so I managed to drop by to see some wonderful pictures. Loved the Sears and Going Green (though I prefer Blue), the Lunch Time guys make a fantastic shot...
    Hope you enjoy Oia and its fabulous sunset at Blogtrotter.
    Have a great weekend!

  11. This point of view is amazing! As a Chicago native I've seen this many a time but never quite like this.
