#1 Google image for “chicago”
I’m happy to see that this image is the #1 result from a images.google.com search for Chicago.
The way the shadows loom large over the street, beach and lake is quite an impact. And those are among the smaller-sized buildings in Chicago.
The aerial nature of the photo also gives a nice representation of the beaches. Chicago is known to most outsiders for its tall buildings, yet it was the lakefront that was recently voted as the #1 wonder of Chicago in a Chicago Tribune poll.
