Cloud Gate

My next picture from the city of Chicago is one of the city's latest attractions. The name of this large sculpture is Cloud Gate and it can be found in at the AT&T Plaza in Millennium Park in downtown Chicago. Nicknamed The Bean due to its shape, it was designed by Indian-British artist Anish Kapoor. It was constructed between 2004 and 2006 and might very well be one of the most photographed landmarks in the city.

This photo was taken from the side, the sculpture is better known from the front or back, but this view gets the best reflections I think, showing the skyscrapers along East Randolph Street, the tallest one being the Aon Center.

PS - can you find me? ;-)
