    Well, they've widened the street restrictions so that everything to the east of Rt. 45 through
    Des Plaines is effectively local traffic only. All major East-West streets are effectively blocked
    because of the river overflow. That's a good three miles or more long. The local economy suffers.

    Basically the entire center of this map crop ...

    The red circle is the location I took the 360 River-flood panorama.

    Word has it that there are six-inches of river water in the local Community College (where I got
    my Photography Certificate) and no one can get in to bail her out, because it is right next to the
    river.

    Here's an overhead shot of the campus area, a little further to the north, during drier times.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
