Behold, “The Bean”

The Bean Millenium Park Feb 6 2016

The other day I posted a photo showing a rather unique architectural structure on top of the roof of an old building here in Chicago.  I mentioned that we often miss opportunities to see interesting sights right in front of us; the ‘ordinary surroundings’ can be quite extraordinary.

This morning I had the occasion to walk past Millenium Park; home of “The Bean”, or its real name, “Cloudgate” (which I suspect no one but the artist calls it by its ‘real’ name).  Normally I would keep on walking, thinking about anything BUT ‘The Bean’.

However, taking my own advice from the other day, I decided to snap a photo for you.  It’s interesting for me to see others finding it interesting!!  Primarily tourists abound The Bean at any given time; and yet, there I was, beaming at The Bean and quite proud that so many people find it so fascinating.  It’s quite a piece of art, our bean!  Note the reflection of some of the skyline in the photo.  It wasn’t until I got home and transferred the photo to my computer that I noticed someone staring at me taking this photo!!! Say “cheese” Mr. Tourist! And welcome (unbeknownst to him) to The Chicago Files!! *LOL*
