The "Bean" in Chicago
We're in Chicago for a few days this week. This photo was taken under the center arch of the "Bean" as it's been nicknamed, otherwise officially known as The Cloud Gate Sculpture, in Millennium Park. It's a really cool reflective steel sculpture that is meant to resemble a drop of mercury. The shiny mirror-like surface reflects visitors and the city skyline from all different angles.
Here it is from further back.
Unfortunately, the weather hasn't been great. But we were able to enjoy several hours outside yesterday before the rain came in last night. Most of my photos didn't turned out as well as I'd liked due to the cloudy weather, still getting used to my new camera, and being away from home and unable to do any editing. But I've had a great time with so many photo opps!
One more fun photo; my youngest son fearlessly standing on the clear glass "Ledge" that sticks out over the city from the observation deck of the Sears Tower (now the Willis tower, but everybody still calls it the Sears Tower!)
Enjoy more sweet shots at Life With My 3 Boybarians!
