A close-up photograph of an upper section of the Chicago Tribune Building shot in late afternoon sun that turns the face of the building a glowing orange-red. Vertical buttresses run up the side of the building, dividing it into bays. The light-colored stone of the building is carved into Gothic forms like pointed arches, gargoyles, and plant motifs. Some of the bays end at the top with elaborate open tracery and are topped by a pinnacle.
