View from Londonhouse Chicago

The view from Londonhouse Chicago - The roof on the 22nd floor of Londonhouse Chicago offers a great view of the river and Marina City

I don’t normally post vertical images this big on my site, but the view is way more dynamic when it’s viewed in a larger size. This was taken right at twilight on June 8th, 2016 from the rooftop bar at Londonhouse Chicago.

In reverse chronological order, this was taken a little bit before sunset.

A detail image of Marina City before sunset. The way the light bounced off the buildings and highlighted the pattern is what caught my eye.

The view from Londonhouse Chicago is awesome, especially at sunset. I took these images two nights ago while I photographed a private event at the rooftop bar.

The snow is finally melting and I’m back to walking a slower pace between locations. All of this means I can take my time and use the puddles to create reflective photographs of the city.

These puddlegrams, named as such by their use on Instagram, are one of my favorite ways to look at the city from a different perspective. These are a few of my favorite shots I’ve made with my mobile phone over the past few months.
