Photoshoot location recommendations ?

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any recommendations about where to go about taking pictures of a bike? Ideally in the northern suburbs, downtown if necessary.

Cool industrial locations? Skyline backdrops?

Thanks,
DTM

Get into the city early morning and head over to the Planterium; best spot to get the Chicago skyline in the background.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Great suggestions, I actually thought about the base, but can't remember if there is actually anything interesting to see there...
