This is the escalator atrium at the center of the Marshall Field's State Street Chicago store. This is one of my favorite places, and I was having lunch there yesterday so I thought I would take this shot. Note the greenish glow, the color of which is "Marshall Fields Green". This venerated flagship store, a real Chicago icon, was recently purchased by Macy's. Just a few weeks ago they announced that they would be changing the name of the store to Macy's. The uproar around the city can still be heard, but unfortunately all of that disgruntled chatter won't matter. Call me pessimistic, but no one will remember Marshall Fields as anything other than the answer to a trivia question in a few years. Thus, like the rest of the store, this green tinge will change.

Super picture! And sorry to hear another American icon will be lost forever.

WOW! ... What a cool shot Mike!
It's sort of an icky green, but the prespective is perfect. Nice job.

All the Lazarus stores in Columbus are now Macy's. Lazarus started in Columbus in the early 1900s and it was a major part of downtown Columbus with its large store on High Street and there was six or seven other stores. The downtown store was closed a year ago or so and is now being converted to office space.

Sweet shot! Wicked perspective and criss-crossing lines. Not to mention the fact that I can scroll down and down........
