I am a couple of days late, but I am now officially joining the ranks of the Chicago blogging masses in posting a few of my personal pics of Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate (aka The Bean). This all started because of a article in last weeks Chicago Reader about photojournalist Warren Wimmer's attempts to take photos of Cloud Gate. Apparently, it is legal to copyright public property. While taking photos with a tripod, he was stopped by security and told he had to fill out a form, and pay for rights to take to photos, because they may be for comercial use. (If you tell them that the are strictly for personal use, they can't stop you.)
The last pic is of the Bean a couple of weeks ago while it was undergoing wraps to polish out its seams over the rest of winter.
