Greening of a City by taffy

Greening of a City

The city has turned green, almost overnight it feels like. The sun shining made the view west fairly clear. I like how this shows the range of architecture visible -- from a granary (that was destined for "development" before Covid) to some pretty amazing churches. At the horizon, we can see O'Hare airport traffic control tower. And I did like seeing all the green.
Such a beautiful city. San Antonio made their abandoned quarry into a spectacular multi use development. Your grain silos and surrounding land will be fabulous I’m sure.

What a view! So many fascinating details!
May 25th, 2020  
What a contrast in views, west vs. east! I certainly did not expect to see grain silos in the vicinity! Happy the spring has sprung upon you in the second city.

Beautiful greening of the city!

This is a completely different view of Chicago. More industrial and definitely more greenery.
May 25th, 2020  
What a beautiful view!

How lovely to see so much green in a cityscape. Lovely capture!

Such a wonderful view and lovely shot There sure is some great architecture down there. Love all the green.
May 25th, 2020  
Love the sweep of this urban vista, so much to see. Hope the development is a tasteful one, so much rubbish being built here.
May 25th, 2020  
What a great view. There are some really interesting buildings. The golden building reminds me of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
May 25th, 2020  
That gold building is lovely

What a different view of Chicago diverse and so different
from your other posts of the downtown..What a wonderful
diversity of views you have of Chicago .

@joansmor Definitely have seen more days of clear air since the shutdown. It's made clear what was fog and what was man-made.
May 25th, 2020  
@tosee Our location is unusual as we're one of three high-rise buildings at the western edge of the downtown. East is the lake and the mostly commercial district between us and the lake. West goes across what used to be industrial and low-rise neighborhoods.

What a view, it's lovely to see so much greenery.
May 25th, 2020  
Impressive
May 25th, 2020

You have two very different but still spectacular views from your apartment. Good shot!
May 25th, 2020  
Great view!
May 25th, 2020  
What a lovely view to have. The green is lovely.
May 25th, 2020  
Lovely view and capture, so different than your usual images of the high-rises
May 25th, 2020  
A lot of buildings standing out here - such a lot to see in the aerial view - and good to see so much green coming through.
May 25th, 2020  
Great shot
May 25th, 2020  
How amazingly different your city looks with green
May 25th, 2020  
What a wonderful shot of the city in spring
May 26th, 2020  
An amazing, unconventional view!

After my mother died, Bill continued her annual spring time question -- "Do you know that in Japan there are 30 ways to name the color of green?" Here, I feel like I can begin to see 30 shades of green.
May 26th, 2020  
It does look so green from this perspective. I like what @jyokota said. I often find myself in awe at how many shades of green there are in nature.
May 26th, 2020  
It's amazing how everything turns green so fast, especially after a rain, same thing here in Canada!
Great view of the city and architecture!
May 26th, 2020  
Good to see trees in the city, this would make a great puzzel
May 26th, 2020  
This view is so different from looking in the other direction. Its great that you can see both ways.
May 26th, 2020  
Amazing
May 26th, 2020  
Spring
May 27th, 2020  
Just wonderful with so much to look at! I have been noticing how fresh and lush all the greens are this Spring-definitely the cleaner air had helped!
May 29th, 2020  
You’re not kidding about the amazing churches. What a spectacular view of all of that. And hurrah for the greening!
