Roof with City View

People often ask if I live in the city or the suburbs. Well, I DO live in the city, but the "city" that most people associate with Chicago is actually the Loop and it's about 6 miles away. I took this pic from my rooftop tonight and you can make out the John Hancock Building to the right of center of this pic and the Willis (Sears) Tower is behind the tree to the right.
I like the fall colors.

Very nice place! I love the city feel to it, yet underlying is a country feel too! I love the trees and they provide great colors!

Lovely shot! I have only been to Chicago once or twice (lived in Macomb eons ago) but always enjoyed what little I saw. This makes me want more!

@tangie - No, I WISH we lived up top where we could see that view everyday, although, I wouldn't want that climb everyday. This is actually the roof of the building, and we live on the 2nd floor.

Love that perspective--the strong diagonal lines of the cars leafs us right up to the horizon, then I'm led right into the cityscape. Very strong composition!

@Swazzette Bet you have a great view right into the trees! you have to climb? no elevator?

@tangie - Nope, no elevator. The building is a 3-flat that was built in 1912.
