Growing up in the Chicagoland area and visiting other cities and towns along Lake Michigan has made me appreciate the different views you can find around the lake. You can see technical similarities in these two photos, with their leading lines and water in the foreground. However, the two cities of Chicago and St. Joseph, MI are very different and offer unique views of Lake Michigan.
