The bean

After a recent trip to Chicago the bean deserved a post all to itself. It’s a sculpture in millennium park and is horribly busy. But it looks great, you can see the clouds and the surrounding skyline reflected in it. I took a lot of photos as there were so many good shots that I couldn’t resist! It’s actually not called the bean, although it looks like one but the cloud gate. It reminded me of the big shiny ball in Bristol, UK, and the Atomium in Brussels.

We wondered how many bean polishers they must be who come over at night and polish the sides as its soooo shiny! Millennium park is filled with several other great sculptures too, lots of heads and fountain.
