Nice one dude. Go to Central Camera on Wabash for your tripod.

Note: When I'm too lazy to carry a tripod when shooting, I just set my camera (Canon 30D) on top of something flat and that usually works.

To add to your suggestions, being patient helps a lot too. Compose, keep your camera level, keep your elbows in, core tight. A lot of modern consumer cameras can pull of that low light image just fine if you just focus on not rushing to take the photo.

Visited the site yesterday to take some photos for Walsh. Here are a few of my favorite photos:

Thanks for the advice everyone! I'll keep all that in mind :D

Amazing shots as usual Nick!

No crane raise yet :(

I love the Chicago and American flags hung on the core. Great updates everyone.

^^ Nick that shot with the tower crane pointing down river is solid. Your artistic sensibility is boundless

Just noticed they added a cam for Wolf Point East. It is on row 11 on the right..

Nice pickup! That was sure nice of Clark to allow us all to watch this project being delivered by a competitor! Crane jump is in progress.

Also, noticed on the 110 Wacker camera that the crane base within the core is being set.

Looks like the wind is more generous today

Jumped the crane today.

Hate to interrupt this thread, and these amazing photos, to talk about 110 N Wacker, but that tower (110 N Wacker) is going to have a dramatic impact on this vantage point. Have never considered this before.

Bravo on the photos!

A couple quick shots I took with my phone while at the Art on the Mart that I forgot to post yesterday:

Thanks for the update as always Solar...Does anyone else find it unfathomable that those inner two columns and the weight carrying above it are supported by those two thin columns and cantilevered over a thin piece of concrete? If someone could explain the engineering there I'd appreciate it.

I thought the same thing when those crane segments were resting on the Southern pool deck cantilever near the crane as well. I guess the obvious answer would be "today's reinforced concrete is really strong"..but I still cant wrap my head around it.

Great observation. If anything, you'd think there would be a transfer floor where the columns increase in size. Anyone? Bueller?

I would guess that it has something to do with some hidden shear walls connected to the core. Like the ones you can see outlined with rebar in this photo from Aug 15.

Thanks to Harry for getting this great shot.
