Wednesday photo: The Bean

Aside from having a German meal in Chicago, there was only one other must-do for me: seeing The Bean.

The sculpture’s official name is “Cloud Gate” and was created by Anish Kapoor. The stainless steel sculpture is located in Millennium Park east of Michigan Avenue.

Standing in front of the sculpture is kind of like standing in front of funhouse mirrors with the curves distorting the image. It was lots of fun to admire the curving buildings and elongated or squashed bodies in the reflection.
