Good morning, Chicago

It’s because of shots like this one that I am reminded why I did not enter into a career in photography. Of course, the John Hancock Center and yet another water streaked window didn’t exactly play into this blog’s favor on a chilly February morning. We’re on the Magnificent Mile, several blocks off of Lake Michigan, and although it appears bright and sunny from the 15th floor, it’s actually only 17 degrees outside. On the bottom right is the Fourth Presbyterian Church, which houses a congregation that moved into its original home on the first day of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. That church was destroyed by the fire and the congregation eventually moved into the building depicted below, which opened in 1914. So much for history. The Kings are hoping to pen a new chapter to this rivalry after a disappointing loss to the Blackhawks in the season opener. Game time is 12:30 Pacific and will be broadcast live on NBC.
