The Way We Choose to See Things

Chicago Architecture Photography

The way we choose to see things makes all the difference. It gives you a different perspective. Sometimes I walk around and feel like I’m living in this little bubble, constantly going through the motions and stuck in a this world of “comfortability” sort to speak. Not to say that being comfortable is wrong/ bad by any means, but I tend to need a change in my routine every now and then in order to keep being excited about what I do. And this is not only speaking in terms of photography. Every time I travel to Chicago, I usually take the Metra Railway to Chicago Union Station. I get off and weave through the crowd of people with their own agenda at hand, and as I exit, I am always welcomed by the Sears (Willis) Tower. There’s always a line out the door waiting for their chance to visit the Skydeck, along with couples taking selfies with it in the background. I have seen it many times, and have photographed it too many times to count. I usually just pass by it now, as it has become yet another billboard on my route through the city. But instead of passing by it a hundred times and just brushing this architecture marvel off my shoulders, what if instead, I looked at it 100 different ways. Now that’s exciting.

Reflections in the Sky


The cars are stopped, waiting as a sea of people cross the street as if it’s just a part of their daily routine. I’m standing above them, blinded for a second by the reflections of Chicago off a building the Chicago reflects. Feeling grateful to be able to stand above the city that I call home. Happy Wednesday!

Living in the Sky

A Chicago Panorama

I’ve never been a big fan of heights. In fact, I just do not like them. Although as much as I despise heights, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the Sky Deck. I remember walking into the elevator with 20 complete strangers, ready to embark on this 103 story ride to the top of Chicago. Once the doors open, I walked out in excitement. I was surrounded by panorama views of Chicago. Then I saw the ledge. A glass box extending 4 feet into the sky. I slowly walked in after about 10 minutes of contemplating whether I should or not. But all the fear washed away the second I stepped on the glass. I felt like I was standing in the sky, getting ready to float with the clouds. I noticed the people coating next to me. They all seemed to be in their own little world. I remember liking this image because it seemed to capture a family living in the sky.
