I almost thought that was my old apartment building at 910 LSD.

More excellent perspective. I also like the cold tones in this one, a bit different from the warm/bromide look of the ones you just posted recently.

This is a gorgeous photo. I love your eye for angles. Seeing your photos, and knowing your tastes via The Sartorialist, it all makes sense. Appreciation for the details and idiosyncrasies in buildings and clothes. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Alice! You just took me back. I lived at 330 Diversey a few years ago.... one of the things I miss most about Chicago is coming home to the ordered lines of Mies'. Gorgeous photography :)

I remember the first time I saw his architecture--I was humbled.

Ah, Mies, what can I say. Since the very first of his buildings I saw (in Berlin), every single time I see one of his designs, he becomes my favorite architect again...

I love Mies! This is a great shot again!

Mies- say no more...LOVE HIS STUFF!!!
Maybe because I've studied at Bauhaus and his spirit was present everywhere....
