Lonely Standpipe: Looking for A Hookup

There's some great architecture in Chicago, but how many times do people go around photographing Fire Dept. Standpipes? Yep, I got a few stares while snapping these beauties on an old bank building in the Loop. Stand back, people...I'm on a 365 mission!
I love this picture!

Something we sure don't' see here............I didn't even know there was such a thing....Standpipe.
The foam is not detergent; at least not in N. Michigan. It is a natural by- product of decomposing lake matter.

Very original shot!!! I always get crazy looks too. :) Most of my shots are taken from the side of the road. I will be driving, and see something I think is pretty... so I will pull over and stop. People laugh. People wave.... but I get my shot. Haha.
