it’s all about the bean

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.

as seen in Chicago

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.

 

It was a beautiful day with unusually warm weather for December.

 

The London House (center) and… well…you know.

 

The Chicago River looking particularly grand today.

Thanks for stopping buy!

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!
