I was out of town in our training center last week and had the foresight to bring my camera. This is the view out one of the classroom windows at the end of the day, one of my favorite times for shots of this nature.

Anybody guess the city? There's a major clue in the skyline :D. - Stu

Place looks "toddlin' " to me... ;)

That's a POV I don't think I've seen before Stu. Very nice

Hi Jay and thank you - "toddlin" ? I confess that's a new one on me :D. Well, the POV was actually outside the hotel lobby which was 11 floors directly above the classroom.

Thank you Lowrider - Well, I'm from Cleveland which has had quite a run of economic bad luck lately, and I was absolutely astonished by the life and vitality downtown at night here. Most of my city hasn't seen excitement like that in years.:(

Is this the only city on our North Coast that isn't going though the economic hard times or does the photographers lens manage to make things look better than they are at street level?
Cleveland is having difficulties, Detroit...is the axilla of the Western Hemisphere, why not Chicago?

Chauncey my friend, you win the brass ring for uttering the actual name first...... although I strongly suspect that my other friends here were probably holding back :lol:.

But I do agree with you that high altitude shots from nice hotel windows have a way of blurring street level misery for those who have fallen on hard times. Downtown Chicago is stunningly beautiful in areas with it's public art, gleaming steel and shining marble facades. As you drive out to Midway airport though you see boarded up storefronts, the narrow residential alley ways, street people in need and other evidence of the current economic troubles.

It always impresses me how selective cropping and POV can give the lie to an actual reality....... or vice versa. And that's what we do every time we put the viewfinder up to our eye ;). - Stu
