Blackhawks Affect Chicago at Night

wpid7162-AU0E3990-Edit.jpgNight photography around the city is something I always enjoy.  You will have seen examples of it here and here and here and probably a bunch of other posts too.  This time I wanted to get out because the Chicago Blackhawks were in the final of the Stanley Cup.  Whenever something big is happening, the buildings near Grant Park can be relied upon to make messages using the lights in their windows.
