    Completed in 1924, the Wrigley Building was headquarters of the chewing gum manufacturer.

    The mottled effect on the clock tower is caused by the sunlight reflecting off the windows of the building opposite.

    Vaguely remember seeing this one here before, Brian, but happy to see it again. Good to have the two humans for scale. The mottled effect is interesting, gives you something to chew on, intellectually speaking!

    It is a new one to me!
    Another example of what I think of as "classic" American architecture. I like the contrast between the sunlight on the buildings and the foreground in shadow, really emphasizes the buildings. A shift lens is the perfect tool for that kind of shot. Real good one!

    The mottling is very interesting and a nice effect. I too really like the composition and scale of this.
