Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #164 – Looking Up/Down…in the city

Guest hostess Sofia’s theme this week is “Looking Up/Down.” Let’s look up and down in two different cities, starting by looking up in Chicago (and no, it’s not a photo of the Bean this week, although I was seriously tempted because it’s so photogenic!)

A bit further in the walk near the art museum, look down. What a contrast to what you see when looking up! Chicago and its metropolitan area do a wonderful job of providing green spaces even in the heart of the city and there are a plethora of parks, especially in DuPage county where we lived. (Isn’t “plethora” a great word?”

In Philadelphia, we can calmly look up and down in the same photo…and see the same thing, just in reverse.

That’s it for today. For all of you in the U.S., happy Labor Day. I hope you have some wonderful plans. For the est of you, I hope the same. 🙂

    Lovely daffodil and the look up at Chicago was so realistic I felt dizzy from the height. I hope you have an enjoyable and relaxing long holiday weekend, roo. Best, Babsje

    Wonderful, Janet! The last one has both the up and down in one go!

  8. Those are lovely reflections, and cheerful flower! I am looking forward to a trip to Ill next month and I’m hoping to see and photograph the Bean myself. It will be the first time I’ve seen it. 😀

  9. Great shots, Janet. The first one is really artistic. Love the sweet daffodil. 😍

    I enjoyed your up/down city views, Janet. Your image of Chicago brings back wonderful memories of visiting our son when he lived there. Do you miss Illinois? I hope you have a great weekend!

    I love the reflective photo in the water. Pretty city. One we haven’t visited.
