The Water Tower, a Chicago landmark. Built in 1869, it originally housed a 20 metre standpipe needed to equalize the pressure of the water pumped from the pumping station just over the road. Long since obsolete, the tower is now a visitor information centre.

All images on this website have been shot using either a Canon S40 compact digital camera, or a Canon 20D DLSR. I'm something of a Canon fan. :) Most images have been post processed with Adobe Photoshop and the CurveMeister plugin. I thoroughly recommend CurveMeister, BTW. It's a great piece of software.
