Tiffany Ceiling

Here are a couple shots of the Tiffany ceiling at the Marshall Fields Department Store in Chicago. They were taken during a 90 minute mad dash to take as many pictures as possible downtown last month. I managed to get off quite a few decent shots. Check out my Flickr photostream for more. I was surprised at the quality of the top one. I took it holding the camera over my head seven storeys below with not flash. I guess it was pretty well lit.

Sadly, Marshall Fields will be changing to the Macy's name shortly. Yet another institution from my childhood (heck, my parents childhood) will be disappearing. To a degree I guess that's just evolution. Luckily the building and the ceiling will stay intact.
