Marina City



I took this picture of the Marina City towers in Chicago while I was standing on one of the bridges crossing the Chicago River. I liked the way the apartments were decorated for Christmas. These towers always remind me of the old Bob Newhart TV show from the 70's, since they were featured in the show's opening sequence.

They look very special indeed, with the colours.

I don't know Bob, but the splashes of color here and there looks fine in the evening sky.

Good night shot, Lois!

These are so much more attractive and distinctive than the typical 20th century architecture. I think these buildings had a cameo role in the Blues Brothers movie as well.

How pretty! And, the lighting of the sky was perfect, too. That appears to be a reflection of the city lights on low cloud cover.

Lovely buildings - same old cloudy, grey Chicago winter sky! Thanks for reminding me of all the great times I've had in Chi town.

These are kind of cool towers, but they look so much better with the colored lights from the holidays.
