    Chicago has a lot of old iron bridges, even more in the past, from the river meandering through the grid of streets.

    The best pictures are always near water or in the mountains. This is the Chicago River from the Western Ave bridge on my way to work.

    I’m convinced processing anomalies increase exponentially with increased film size, 4x5 > 5x7 > 8x10.
