The pandemic has left what usually is the most crowded spot in Chicago, empty and a bit sad. There was a small crowd gathered with appropriate social distancing so that The Bean can remain COVID free. So far, it’s working.
It’s not as though the impossibly shiny, seamless stainless steel reflections of The Bean are flattering! But you can’t help be fascinated by them, and you can’t stop marveling at the crazy distortions of Chicago, and all the visitors drawn by the visual magnetism that is The Bean.
We spent New Year’s Day (also our 36th wedding anniversary) in Chicago! So grateful for my WordPress family and wishing you all the best for 2019!
I spent some time in Chicago with some of my colleagues today. Here is a bit of what I saw. First, falling presents at Macy’s.
Everyone knows that if you find yourself at Macy’s in Chicago during the Christmas season that a visit to The Walnut Room is not to be missed.
The Bean (Cloud Gate) is like a magnet for photographers. I was unable to resist.
I saw two stars and a bean.
The Chicago River looking particularly grand today.
Thanks for stopping buy!
