Cloudgate

Cloudgate, The Bean, Chicago
     365.271

Cloudgate, also known as The Bean, is a popular Chicago tourist attraction in Millennium Park. Inspired by liquid mercury, the structure is made of 168 highly polished stainless steel plates and stands 33 feet long. I took this photo the summer of 2006 when I lived in The Loop. Normally this plaza is swarming with people. As you can see, not many tourists at 8am on a Sunday morning!
