Your Sunday Best - 23 Apr 2011

Okay, here's my contribution for "Your Sunday Best," hosted by A Rural Journal.


"Cloud Gate" (a.k.a. "The Bean"), Chicago, IL October 2009

I took this photo in October 2009, while Livie and I were in Chicago with a friend of mine and her daughter. They'd wanted to do something "touristy" and "uniquely Chicago," so I figured they'd like seeing "The Bean," as it's affectionately called. We then headed to dinner for some authentic Chicago-style pizza, before heading to Ghirardelli's (across from the old Water Tower) for chocolate.

Livie and I love "The Bean" because it is just so cool-looking. It's fun getting photos of it because of its reflective surface. And with the color of the sky, the cityscape, the clouds . . .

Interesting post Sonya. I'd never heard of "The Bean" before. The clouds and the sky reflection is great.

Great photo. I didn't know about the bean before either. Beautiful sculpture.

Thanks and have a good day.

I have seen "The Bean" on other blogs, but never with a fish-eye view. Awesome shot, Sonya!
