Carbide and Carbon spire by spudart Carbide and Carbon spire by spudart
Here's a classic spire from 1929 and in the background is a modern spire from 1990. The classic spire on the Carbide & Carbon building is said to be based on a gold-foiled champagne bottle seen at an office party. Faded in the background thanks to some Chicago fog is a modern spire that sits atop the Two Prudential Plaza. I shot this photo on the 39th floor of Hotel 71 (look for several more photos to be posted from this series).

This is an HDR shot using three exposures. The fog it totally not filtered. That's how the scene really looked at the time! INCREDIBLE, eh? Chicago in the fog is just SOOO beautiful.
