The Chicago Temple Building

W. Washington Street. Wiki says this is the tallest church building in the world (though not the tallest church--that honor belongs to the Ulm Cathedral) Home to the First United Methodist Church of Chicago, 23 of its floors are taken up by religious and office use. The building to the left is the Cook County Administration Building.


  1. That’s a really clever shot. I’m a fan of the “high angle” shot, and I’d imagine that Chicago gives you plenty of opportunities to exploit it!

  2. And, if I'm not mistaken, there is a fine Miro sculpture tucked between this building and the one to the east.

  3. thanks, kris--it's true, i take a lot of these...

    yes, Sharon, Miro's Chicago is right between these two buildings pictured here, i featured the sculpture on the blog last winter (i think it was in feb--will have to check...)

  4. It's a classic shot and mono will always be timeless.
