I faved I’m back…Pumping Sation
by John J. Van Norman (was jjvannorman)
embiggen by clicking: http://flic.kr/p/osWXsK…for more of the Art Deco detail. 

If I may borrow from wiki…

“Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as ‘an assertively modern style [that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material [and] the requirements of mass production’.

During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.”

….hhhmmm…interesting…although some of the buildings I have found were post-crash; albeit this building was finished in 1929.

I faved The Working River
by rjseg1
embiggen by clicking: http://flic.kr/p/oonPTZI love clouds. They bring drama to any photograph. Better than the dreaded overcast, and even better than a clear blue sky, like today’s. Over the last few days a cool front collided with the lingering warm air and it brought tremendous, fast moving, multi-hued clouds. So, after work I headed out in search of skyline venues. First stop, the Cortland Avenue Bridge, the first of the so-called Chicago-style bridges built. While setting up for this shot I saw a barge coming around the bend of the north branch of the Chicago River. So, I waited. A lot of Chicagoans don’t know that the river was once clogged with commercial and industrial traffic. Now, we just see the occasional barge as a reminder of this past. As the barge passed I noticed something I’d never seen before. As the barge approached the bridge the tug’s wheel house began to drop. I never realized that the tugs were outfitted with hydraulics to lower the wheel house to slip under the bridges and then rise back up for a better view. Neat.
