Put the pin down and walk away……s-l-o-w-l-y…..
Taken moments before The Bean swallowed me whole. I had enough time to take this shot, grab the SD card and throw it to freedom. I then snapped my shutter three times while saying, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.” That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Not much of a challenge here, but I have to find some way to justify sharing all these picture of The Bean 🙂 Just one more after this one…. I promise.
I have not researched this yet to know the artist(s) or project, but there are at least four of these giant heads in and around Millennium Park in Chicago. This one makes a nice addition to the skyline, don’t you think?
One more shot of Calder’s Flamingo in Chicago.
Spent a wonderful day in Chicago celebrating the birthday of one of my colleagues. I never grow tired of Chicago’s architecture, art and public spaces.
Millennium Park is really a treasure! The actual name of this famous sculpture is Cloud Gate.
Called the Bean because of it’s shape, Cloud Gate has become the signature sculpture of Millenium Park along the lakeshore opposite the grand Chicago skyline. The bean makes an appearance in the movie Source Code. You can read about this amazing sculture here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Gate
