Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

Cloud Gate, aka “The Bean” is a 110-ton stainless steel sculpture located in Millennium Park, Chicago. The surface is smooth and shiny and provides many unique reflections of the surroundings, tourists and the city’s skyline. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect from the sculpture but quickly found myself exploring and playing around with the distorted reflections that were reminiscent of a fun house of mirrors.

I couldn’t resist this photo op and was especially intrigued with the reflections bouncing off the inside of “The Bean.” In this picture, I was standing under the arch pointing the camera up and towards the center creating an image with a telescopic affect with many reflections of reflections. Fun!

I quickly learned why “The Bean” is one of the more popular photo spots in the city!
