This panoramic photograph of Chicago, Illinois, includes a well-designed mix of major roads, historic and contemporary architecture, small-scale structures, open areas and a river. Pictured is a portion of the Chicago River which winds through the city's central area.

In the photo, the river is clearly visible in a bank of reflections cast by the windows of a downtown high-rise building. Surrounding the river are newer residential buildings in which balconies hang out over the river. The old Chicago Stock Exchange building can be seen near the water. Beyond the building and the river, there are several signs and a bus stop. To the north, as seen from the river, the water cascades over an arch bridge and eventually terminates in the lake. Along this stretch, the shoreline includes parks and bicycle and walking paths. A large park is seen across the river and contains a fort built in the early 19th century and bordered by decorative trees.

The view is a composition of the top photograph taken from various positions. This photograph is an example of a perfect city panorama, in which the elements, including the signs, storefronts, architecture, people, patterns of light and the lines of the skyscrapers are perfectly placed in such a way as to create a harmonious unity of appearance.

Street View

The Google Street View of the city shown in the top photograph was taken from the viewpoint of the camera housing and is not necessarily the most desirable viewpoint. The Street View is dynamic in that as the Google car approaches a landmark, another street scene is rapidly snapped into place on the same web page as the landmark. If you can see an object, you can see the same object from that angle as it would look as the Google car approaches it. Therefore, the Street View is an example of a perfect city panorama, in which the elements, including the signs, storefronts, architecture, people, patterns of light and the lines of the skyscrapers are perfectly placed in such a way as to create a harmonious unity of appearance.

The first panoramic photograph of Chicago, Illinois, shows a beautiful mixing of new and old. Included in the photograph is a view of the Chicago river, some newer residences, several small hotels, older mansions and the old Chicago stock exchange building. The building in the center of the view is very distinctive and attractive.

The second panoramic photograph of Chicago, Illinois, includes some of the most beautiful city panoramas that I have ever seen. The view was taken from the Balcom Park viewpoint overlooking Grant Park, including the buildings along Michigan Avenue, in front of the Buckingham Fountain and the Art Institute of Chicago. It is an excellent view of a well-designed city panorama.

The two sets of stairs on the park side of the structure were in their original placement. The wood lattice supports the stairs and they are not intrusive at all. The combination of the clear, shining river water, the backdrop of the snow-capped buildings and the appearance of the timeworn city mansions makes for an exceptionally memorable photograph.

In the photograph, the beautiful buildings along Michigan Avenue form the backdrop to the park. The tree on the left is the new bronze statue of Gertrude Baessler-Dunham designed by Galen Boushell and E.H. Harbison. It is very pleasant to look at. The bridge is the stone and concrete Comiskey Pedestrian Bridge with its towers and mansard roof. In front of the bridge is the modern 400 N. Michigan Avenue Building, across the street from the Art Institute of Chicago. Behind this building are several restaurants. Across the street from the 400 N. Michigan Avenue Building is a vacant lot. It is possible to go across the lot and under the Art Institute to the park side of the buildings where the two sets of steps are seen in the photograph. The photograph was taken from the lowermost step leading to the park side of the building. The steps are nicely lit and the view is excellent. There are dozens of reflections in the river as the sun reflects off the windows of buildings at the far right side of the photograph.

In the third panoramic photograph of Chicago, Illinois, the Chicago River and the Chicago skyline can be seen. The reflections of the river are the classic diagonal reflections seen from the footpath of the bridge. The river is reflected several times in the glass facade of the buildings. The branches of trees are reflected in the water. Buildings line the edge of the river with many interesting angles. Along the river are the stadiums, hotels and the striking monolith of Willis Tower. The river is filled with boats and at this time of day it is extremely crowded. The activity of thousands of people bring a life and motion to the waterfront that is not usually seen in this area of the city. To the left of the photograph, across the bridge from the skyscrapers, is a large park with a snow-covered section of shoreline and large trees.

The photographer has taken advantage of the sun, using the path of the sun as an attractive background to the buildings that are just to the left of the water. This photograph has a relaxed appearance.
