Here is another picture of the Kapoor Cloudgate sculpture that I promised earlier. As I have said before, I think this is one of the most unique pieces of outdoor art that you will ever see. It is fascinating to see from a distance, but it draws you in and forces you to put your hand on it and look at your reflection, all while also reflecting such a beautiful part of the skyline. Underneath, where you can see all the people gathered, there is an inverted cone-shaped area that creates one heck of an optical trick when you look up.

It's like a giant, metallic jellybean. Great shot. I love the relfection in the sculpture.

this is indeed unique Mike! great shot. it's like a giant balloon fell from the sky and was trapped in front of that building...or some kind of soft metal thing that got its own shape from the fall. haha! very nice piece of art.

Now I have another reason to visit Chicago. I keep trying to figure out where you are in the reflection, but can't place you. Anyway, it's a nifty object d'art. Nice job.

Wow. That structure is amazing looking. It looks like either a giant water droplet or a spaceship. I love the reflection coming off of it, the way it's being distorted by the shape of the sculpture.
