2 June 2014: While Waiting for the L on a Beautiful Day in June

The view from one of my favorite L platforms at Library/State & VanBuren. 
And what a gorgeous day it was!

On the left is the Fisher Building, designed by Daniel Burnham,
which was completed in 1896. On the right is the Old Colony Building,
designed by Holabird & Roche, which was completed in 1894.
Between them are the CNA Center (the red building) and
ornamental copper owls atop the Harold Washington Library Center.   

A closer look at one of the wise old copper owls atop the library.

I love how the reflections from the windows
create a dappled effect on Dearborn St.
