The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre

The ornate facade of Chicago Theatre. It’s a pity that I didn’t get a chance to go in. The interior design, with elaborate murals adorning the ceiling, is known to be just as ornate as the outside of the building.

Marina City

Marina City

This is the facade of Marina City, which consists of two corncob-shaped towers. I love architecture and this iconic building in Chicago is one of my favorites.

The bottom 19 floors form an exposed spiral parking ramp. The 20th floor contains a laundry room with panoramic views, while floors 21 through 60 contain apartments. These apartments are unique in having almost no interior right angles. A 360-degree open-air roof deck lies on the 61st and top story.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

KM 82

KM 82

KM 82 is the starting point of Inca Trail (3-day hike) to Machu Picchu. From here, it appears that everything converges to infinity. Discouraging, and yet exciting!

Willis Tower

Willis Tower (still commonly referred to as Sears Tower) is an iconic skyscraper in Chicago.

One Night in Taipei

One Night in Taipei

A wet night in Taipei. I love the reflection on the ground, which somehow enhanced the convergence effect.

These are my interpretations of the theme Converge. Which do you like?
