William E. Dever Crib Lighthouse, Chicago, Illinois⠀⠀ I saw this while out on Lake Michigan and did not know at the time that there's a lighthouse on the intake crib. This crib and others supply Chicago with water from Lake Michigan. September 2016⠀ #lighthouses#lighthouse#lighthouse_lovers #lighthouselove
• The Lighthouse • This was one of my highlights of the trip! As a glass lover, it was no real surprise that I fell in love with this beautiful Fresnel lens. It is distinctive from other lighthouses in that it has red panels offsetting every two white, so the light shines a pattern 🔴⚪️⚪️🔴⚪️⚪️🔴⚪️⚪️🔴⚪️⚪️🔴⚪️⚪️🔴 And the red shade is made by real gold in those panels, so there’s a little bit of scientific magic there as well ✨ The play between light and glass is what has always drawn me most to this medium, so needless to say, I was enthralled!
