Bean




Officially called the "Cloud Gate" or something like that, this is mostly called the bean. Situated in Millenium Park in Chicago, it attracts a big crowd during the day and even a few early in the morning.

We were in Chicago this past weekend and I made it to this area twice this trip. Once in the afternoon when the crowds were out and once at 6:30 in the morning. Even in the morning, I was not the only person there. Other photographers appeared, early morning joggers and couples stopped by and of course the usual security person.

I was wondering while I was looking at the photos I took, what the attraction of mirrored surfaces are, especially if they are curved. One person commented on my Flickr photos and wondered if there was a camera convention going on since there were so many photographers in the photos.

Even though I wonder, I still think it's fascinating.

I am really lovin the third picture in the bottom. It's a great shot. And it looks like it's fun to photograph.
