Marina Towers

I was on a photowalk last Saturday with a group of people in downtown Chicago along the river.  It was part of an international event with over 28,000 photographers in over 1200 photowalks.  It’s a good excuse to go out and make images as well as meet all sorts of people.  I worked with photographers from as far away as Crete, Illinois (about 10 miles from me) to a photographer on holiday from his home just outside of London, England.

This image is of the Marina Towers, the upper portion of the Marina City complex.  When they were first built, they seemed pretty tall, but now they’re dwarfed by all sorts of structures.  They are also famous for the chase scene in Steve McQueen’s final film (The Hunter – 1979) where a car makes an illegal exit from the 17th floor parking garage into the Chicago River.

When I was looking at the tower, I noticed the red object (I think it’s a barbeque grill of some sort) and felt it stuck out nicely against all the dull concrete.
