Photo of the Week: 21st Century Chicago

This week's photo was taking during the final New Music Monday series in Millennium Park. I was in the seated section of the Pritzker Pavilion, looking west towards the Chicago Cultural Center and Michigan Ave. I've been meaning to take a photo like this for a while, but didn't have the right lens with me (70-300mm) until this week to really get the shot I wanted. I decided to convert this to black and white because I liked how the classic look contrasts with the modern elements of everyone on their phone or using a camera.
