This is the view from Nabila's studio in downtown Chicago. It was pretty breathtaking. We stood there trying to pick out the bumpy stuff also known as land on the other side. It was crazy flying into the city, seeing the lake look so much like an ocean and for a second not knowing where I was. And then for the whole weekend not really fully knowing where I was at any one time. Chicago seemed so much flatter than all the other cities I've grown used to. The high rises didn't dominate the horizon, affording me this memory.
