Quaker Wheel

Quaker Wheel

Walking through the Lincoln Park Conservancy is a bit like stepping back in time. Built in the 1890s, the metal and glass structure retains much of its 19th Century charm. Spotting this wheel and chain from Quaker City Machine Co., I felt like I was on the set of an Indiana Jones movie, complete with the satirical directional arrows painted on by an enraged engineer.

The Canon 6D really does hold up well to high ISO settings, and much of the film grain you see here was added in post to give the image a more dated quality to match the age of the machinery.
