The stainless steel sculpture named Cloud Gate opened in Chicago‘s Millennium Park in 2005.  Known to most people as “The Bean”, the sculpture’s highly polished surface and odd shape makes it perfect for a fascinating photograph in all sorts of weather.

    I love this collection. I wanted to buy a book of photos of the “Bean”…….can’t find one. If you can get rigths, you should publish a coffee table of Bean photography.
