Shot number three of this week's Cloud Gate Series. The neat thing about the shape of this sculpture is that it's upper curve somehow reflects the sidewalk below, even when you are not standing directly below it. I can now appreciate that the people who planned the environment around this sculpture took great pains to make sure that the immediate surroundings were not too distracting. We take for granted the amazing reflections in the metal, but the sculpture would look completely different if it was located in a different place. In fact, it definitely wouldn't work in many other locations.

That is too cool how it reflects so much around it!! I really like this shot, and you titled it perfectly.

great photo; the distortion seems to get worse as you look at the shot.

If things started to look like that I would have thought I stepped into an episode of the Twilight Zone.
