blog of photos taken with a camera by me


Rob Wicks of Pleasanton visits the Sunol Water Temple in Sunol, California. Built in 1910 by the privately owned Spring Valley Water Company and designed by Willis Polk, the 59 foot high classical pavilion is made up of twelve concrete Corinthian columns. It marks the confluence of three East Bay water sources – though only one is currently in use. At one time, more than half of San Francisco’s water passed here.
