The Hancock over Water Tower | The Chicago Water Tower is the only public building in the “burn zone” that survived the Chicago Fire of 1871. Ever since, it’s been considered a symbol of Chicago’s past and phoenix-like rise to Global City. While developments like the massive Hancock building have overtaken the water tower in size, it’s stature is still quite great in Chicago. This photo was taken on a very windy night, which sometimes makes taking HDR images very challenging. In this instance, however, the blurring of the trees’ branches creates a kind of chaotic framework around two of the city’s most treasured landmarks.
