Robots in Disguise

If you are not a Chicagoan or a suburbian of Chicago, you may not know that over the past month Transformers 3 has been filming in our lovely downtown metro landscape. Going to work is exciting every day because you never know if you should be running away when you hear gun shots, ducking when a helicopter zooms overhead, or calling for help when you see someone jumping from a building, and because of my office location, we have one of the best seats in the house to view the action. Here are some photos of what we have become accustomed to seeing the past few weeks. Nothing phases us anymore!

The leading actor, Shia LaBeouf.

This sign is for all the oblivious tourists milling about.

The view from the conference room in my office.

Rubble (a.k.a. painted styrofoam) in front of the Tribune Building.

View from the Trump Tower across the river. I spy an upside down ambulance, do you?

Life-size destruction.

This poor boat, if only it knew what it had coming.

A lot of people have been taping the commotion and posting videos on YouTube. I like this video from someone who works in another building in this war zone. Note the caption: "How am I supposed to get work done while decepticons are attacking?"

Happy Friday everyone!

Thanks to my coworkers for letting me use some of their photos.


  1. Ok you seriously must work 2 blocks from me! Maybe we can get together for lunch. I'm at 225 N Michigan Ave.

  2. Jenna: Yes! I'm right on the river. Email me and we'll set up a time :)
