My wife would be at all day training for pretty much the rest of our time in Chicago. This enabled me to go off and do my normal slow paced photography at more appropriate times of day

I’d seen some images online taken from this location (it’s at the top of Navy Pier Parking deck behind the Centennial Wheel, fairground and theatre
