photoblog image A Morning at Buckingham Fountain, Chicago.

A Morning at Buckingham Fountain, Chicago.

I have to say, a nice day down by this fountain is quite something. Buckingham Fountain, at the centre of Grant Park in downtown Chicago as simply a wonderful landmark in a city full of wonderful landmarks. One of the things I love most, however, about this photo is that great building that stands out in the background on the right (the one witht the green-copper roof).

Check out this Google Maps image and you'll realize just how big this is (compared to the size of the people in the satellite photo!)

I've been to Chicago countless number of times, yet never seen this?! Ahh, this demands another trip there. Great composition here Iain.

I like how the copper roof on that great building echoes the copper statues in the fountain. This looks fantastic! I need to go see it for myself.
