Walking the Dog by taffy

Walking the Dog

There's a tiny person and their dog going for a walk along the empty street, though I obviously was taking the photo of the two buildings. Taken on my way home from my 1.25 walking loop, as I thought Skybridge (our building, on the right) looked better than my usual view when I walk home a block north. It sits next to a major highway which is obscured from this angle. For those curious, when I take photos of the skyline, I'm leaning onto the balcony or looking out the window on the far right side, toward the top but below the skydeck.
Thank you so much for putting my flyover image onto TT!
I opened the 365 update -- and I thought, someone who's walking a dog took a photo of Taffy's building! And, of course, it was you -- minus the dog. What a beautiful way to see it with the greenery in the foreground. Ok, now I see that dog and walker. But your building takes the first spot.

Makes it look so green and lovely! Interesting to understand the geography of the skydeck too.

Quite amazing, I have never seen it from this perspective.

Very pretty and everything is blooming so nicely.

A wonderful shot of Chicago and your lovely skyline Fav

Chicago is so different to the small town I live in. Makes me interested in visiting, but I'd still come back home. Beautiful shot.

Great looking buildings and thanks for the comment. I sure would have missed the dog

It's wonderful that you have so much greenery around the house. Beautiful shot.

Beautiful capture, lovely composition with the park in the foreground

It was so interesting to see your home from this perspective - and see where your viewpoint is for those stunning city shots. :)

Beautiful shot

Great sense of scale of their surroundings

good composition – they are very useful in giving us the scale of it all

What a rich, colorful photo! Love your location. My company (which I do occasional work for these days) has an office on LaSalle. So, does your place face north, and you lean out to get the skyline shots while looking east?

@stray_shooter Wow -- where on LaSalle? That's not far from me at all. So, our living room windows look directly east on one side and north on the other. The sliding door opens on the north set of windows which is why the shots to the north, northwest, and northeast never have reflections to deal with. The dining room windows look north and west. And the bedrooms look west. We love the unit as it gives us about 250 degrees of views. If ever there is travel again, you'll have to let me know if you're in the city.

I can’t believe you’ve gotten so brave with the height. Nice composition

@taffy Not far from you, near Adams and LaSalle. Would love to meet and hit the town (and quite possibly Geno's East) for a photo session if I were to make it there - maybe drag Louise along too! I wouldn't expect that to happen anytime soon, though, as I'm strictly on consultant duty and the company is not doing well in this economy.

Your shots have given me a whole new perspective on Chicago - this is lovely
May 24th, 2020  
@stray_shooter Someday! Maybe a photo meetup even if not work related. We can always dream!
May 24th, 2020  
Beautiful perspective of your building and its surroundings.
May 24th, 2020  
Pretty picture
May 24th, 2020  
So there is!
May 24th, 2020  
Nice one Taffy.
May 24th, 2020  
This is wonderful!
