Great views and photo opps

Any recs of treasures that are not well known. Willis Tower for city view, right? For the "bean", I'd like to capture the city reflection somehow. Any other notable places?

Start with your hotel and Marina Towers. Any way you turn from there should give you an architectural subject. If you get tired of buildings, try and capture the city's public art. Don't forget Graceland Cemetary. The Mogel's of the 20th century knew how to build monumental tombs. The lakefront parks are unbelievable spaces in the crowded city center.

Ride the Brown Line around the Loop and get some shots from inside the train.You can capture some the older buildings ornate features. El platform hustle and bustle can be cool. Take a boat tour for river shots.

Lovely views of the skyline can be found at Montrose Harbor--looking south or near the Aquarium, looking north. Another cool view at night is in Greektown. You can kind of get a "back door" look at the city.
