Cloud Gate Closeup

Cloud Gate, more commonly known as “The Bean” is a fun sculpture to photograph. The only issue with it that I found is how popular it is in the day and evening times. First thing in the morning I practically had the whole of the Millennium Park to myself so my only concern was not getting myself or the camera in the reflection. After getting a few wide angle photographs with interesting reflections and the city skyline behind it I moved in for some closer views. The stainless steel could have done with a clean but I think that the contrast between the tree on the left of the frame and the extremely distorted reflection of the buildings works really well.
