The carrot & the stick

Finally! They may still all be packed, but I've unloaded the final box! Sorry for the delay in posting. I wish I could blame it on my internet setup, but we had it the day we moved in...I was just REALLY tired... So I've made a deal with myself. I promised myself if I didn't miss a day of posting for the next 3 months I would buy myself a Canon G9. It's really small & lite but still has most of the power of an SLR...A little pricey but a very Cool Camera to take with you when you don't feel like carrying the weight of an SLR.

Today we took a drive up Milwaukee Ave to the bend in the river, or where the North branch & the South branch of the Chicago River join up & flow to Lake Michigan. This photo is looking East to 333 W Wacker Dr.
"Developed in 1983 by Urban Investment and Development Co., 333 West Wacker was designed by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates and has received the National American Institute for Architects' National Best Design Award. The Class-A office tower, with its green curved glass design, overlooks the bend in the Chicago River where the river divides Wacker Drive into its north and west branches and also offers unmatched, unobstructed views of the Chicago skyline."

Canon 20D
Tamron 11-18 f4.5-5.6
f16 1/125 Sec @ ISO 100
