Chicago, Illinois

A photograph of the famous "bean" in Millennium Park in downtown Chicago.

 

It took me forever to set-up this shot. I've seen so many photographs of the bean; here I wanted to do something different.

    Very nice. Symmetry just like the "bean." Must have been an early in the morning shot to avoid the crowds.

    Excelente perspectiva. Me encanta el paralelismo vertical de los edificios, sin un ápice de descompensación de lente. Muy buena.

    I love the leading lines here. It makes something that is photographed so much have a unique perspective.

    Very nice. I like the lighting in this pic. It is funny how the sunset in Chicago makes everything have an unusual tint. That bean is mesmerizing, isn't it? It bends reality in such a way, that you just can't stop staring at it. Reminds of this pic I took while there at a conference last year.

    the bean bubble

    Almost spooky, right? Like a Magritte or Dali painting in real life.
