The Bean is Finished... Finally...
But, The Bean (Cloudgate) is finally finished, it only took 23 million dollars, and an additional 22 months, but it is finally finished. The artist Anish Kapoor was in town this week for the official dedication ceremony.
This afternoon I noticed the interestingness of the clouds and thought it would be a great time to walk over to Cloudgate. The color of the sky was gray, but there were patches of deep blue peeking through at times.
I really like the way I framed this one.
Illinois Center reflected, along with a bit of myself.
This shot was nice with the clouds and sun.
Me again in the center.
I want to say that I am so over "The Bean", but as jaded as I can be at times, I am still captivated by it. Maybe after another 500 visits, I will grow tired.
