the way we live

photo friday: the bean

 bean2-a2.jpg

here’s a shot i love: the reflection of the chicago skyline along south michigan avenue as seen through annish kapoor’s marvelous “cloudgate,” affectionately referred to as “the bean.”   the way the skyline is warped and bent through the seamless reflective sculpture gives the image an ethereal watercolor like quality.  in a way it’s almost like a rea-life salvador dali painting.  this photo was taken using kodak ektachrome professional plus 100 speed film.
