They just unveiled the newly polished Cloud Gate sculpture at Millennium Park. I have said it many times, but I think this is by far the most amazing public sculpture you will ever see. It is basically a giant kidney bean with a surface like a mirror. I will post some other pics of it in the next few days. It was originally unveiled last summer, but they put it back under wraps so that workers could polish the seams smooth. It took months longer than expected, but the end result was well worth it.


Taking a shot like this in this curved reflection wreaked havoc on my auto focus...

Sweet shot. Very playful. --- Feel the manual focus Luke, feel the manual focus.

Wow. It took a few seconds for me to realize that this was a reflection. Great self-portrait.

Hello there, I felt invited just after reading your comment at mine :)
I simply can't check all of the photos you put up, but so far I am to admit they're just great and I will watch the rest as soon as possible.
