Downtown Chicago is the iconic Chicago. It's the area most people immediately envision when thinking of Chicago. Hell, it's really all I knew of Chicago before moving here eight years ago. I just assumed the skyscrapers stretched on forever... or at the very least, to Naperville. Visiting, it's what's people want to see. It contains all of the imagery of classic Chicago--the Sears Tower, the Hancock Building, the river, Watertower place, as well as a number of the larger theatres and more prominent museums.

Patrick and I have decided to shoot downtown in pieces; we're kind of blending and dividing a few recognized districts of downtown rather than actual neighborhoods.  Our first portion hovered around the financial district but we stretched those boundaries a bit to the north and west.
