Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

Chicago, Chi-Town, The Windy City, The Second City.

It is also called The City of Big Shoulders.  It is definitely a city of big buildings.  It is in fact the home of one of the tallest buildings in the world, the tallest building in North America, and the seventh tallest freestanding structures in the world.  Tourist will know the building by a different name, but for those of us who grew up, lived and worked in the great city of Chicago, it will always be known as The Sears Tower.

If it had been a clearer day, I would have climbed to the top and taken a few shots from the glass boxes in the Skydeck, but the clouds were moving in quickly, and I decided to save that for another day.  But you can see the full glass enclosures way at the top in the picture below.

The Sears Tower in downtown Chicago, Illinois is one really “Big” building!
