Awesome night shot — a real film shot, BTW — of a Deco landmark in Chicago.
From the photographer (who is well worth checking out on DA):

The Bank of America Building, Financial District, Chicago Downtown Loop.  Completed in 1934 and standing at 535 ft, it is the last Art Deco  skyscraper to be built downtown due to the Great Depression. Originally  the Field Building, It was built for Marshall Field to be the largest  office building in the Loop.FILM SCAN!
