Tonight on WGN, a modern Bonnie & Clyde tale of a married couple that frequently go on shooting binges throughout the city post in online forum they enjoy it and plan on doing it again! Tune in for the latest, after sports.

Still a great name! It fits perfectly in a festival with the ACTUAL BANDS Bongzilla, Dopelord, Weedeater, and Bongripper.

But I digress ... Nick's photography, whether by good timing, the right light, or his enviable prowess in his craft, shows that this tower will always look different depending on where you are and when you view it.

And it's going to be at least a year before I stop calling it "Vista."

Hahahah. 100% true. That might be a good pitch to get some PR, actually...

In all my time shooting Vista, I've come to accept it's a mercurial tower to photograph. Its color palette at any given time incredibly variable based on sky conditions and the atmosphere.

Do you ever stitch together shots, like a gradient, showing off the way Vista/St Regis shifts with the color of the sky?

I did a double take for a moment too, but I don't think he is standing on shelf ice. That area is concrete.

I do stitch images together (to 'fit' more into the scene) on occasion. Particularly with Vista and other tall buildings, I need to stack two photos vertically to fit it . BUT I typically keep the settings the same so the brightness/color of the photos are identical for a seamless blend of the frames.

That said, do you mean, like different photos taken on different days?

Correct, we were either on the snow-covered concrete, or the packed snow/ice that was atop the concrete seawall ringing the planetarium. Certainly not without it's risks, but they were measured compared to some people I've seen out at North Avenue Beach...

Those are some amazing photos. Does your friend have a sharable social media account (preferably Instagram)?

I don't know if I'm explaining this very well as I don't have the words for it. I was thinking about a gradient of Vista from different days and putting slices of each day side-by-side to get a view of how the tower changes in different lighting. Something a bit like this:

this photographer likes to do stuff like that, granted it looks within the same day but similar effect... can see Vista in the right side of the first one:

Ahhh. I got ya, I made this one smooth blend (below) between a day and a night shot some time back. In your example the individual Alices vary a lot more than mine might, because I'd probably try to normalize the white balance/color grading so each slice is more neutral.

I suppose I could do it in horizontal slices instead of vertical, but it would require to be in a very precise spot multiple times. It can be done, but I think a comparison of a multiple photos at different times of day would prove more effective since on any given day the reflections slightly differ from the base to the crown.

I love winter!

Vista is very much a winter tower. Goes well with the cerulean lake in the spring, the dark blue lake of the summer, the green radioactive river during Saint Patrick's and the cold, depression blue lake of winter.

Yess. I feel like the seasonality of this tower is a huge part of its appeal. Always responding to it's surroundings. My favorite part of the winter is the massive exhaust plume it adds to the skyline
