    Simone Arrigoni

A series of shots taken in Chicago, to portray its skylines together with some of its main features: in the 1st picture a star-trail adorns Chicago's skyline from Lincoln Park; in the 2nd one Chicago's skyline stays behind its symbol, the Cloud's Gate sculpture; in the 3rd photo a ferris wheel aims at Chicago's skyline like a giant firearm; in the 4th one Chicago's downtown taken from a skyscraper opens towards an endless sea of lower buildings; in the last one Lake Michigan seems to still Chicago's center at sunset.
