Weekly Photo Challenge: Future-Rising From the Chicago River

This last Sunday, Chicago offered a typical Midwest spring day-pouring rain, strong winds, cold, and heavy fog. So we did what Midwesterners typically do on a rainy day, spent it outside.  We booked a river boat tour on the Chicago River that took us through the heart of Chicago, under its bridges and skyscrapers. I took the feature photo of an old L train on an even older bridge passing by a post-modern skyscraper under construction. The skyscraper appears to balance on one leg, with its under-skeleton bare and exposed. The tour guide told us that this building represents the future of skyscraper construction. By the proximity of the old with the new, this scene points to the future.

The next day in Chicago brought beautiful, warm and sunny weather. My photo album shows some of the sights we enjoyed both on the river boat and the following day.
