strange, some art I just dont get, LOL.
This is a wonderful piece of outdoor art. This could be real fun to photograph on different days and different times. Haven't you shown this one before?
Very nice piece. I did not know about this Chicago landmark. I looked up the details on wikipedia and found some interesting things about it. Thanks for introducing this artwork and the artist.
It's hard now to imagine what it was like before Millenium Park ... such a brilliant group of attractions. Nice shot.
An aesthetic piece of art! I like the reflection captured on it too. Nice composition.
Miracle bean - great name for the piece! When I was in Chicago, there were only Picasso, Miró and Calder, no Kapoor... Need to go back!Have a great week!Blogtrotter
This really works well in b&W. It looks like a scene out of a futuristic movie . . . fun to photograph.
Very nice, not sure i "get it" though.
Thank you Jim, Clueless, Hyderabad, R&R, J.C, Gmg, Slim and Rodpascoe. It's very nice to meet you, j.c. and rodpascoe! Yes, clueless, I have posted the bean in the past--it's one of the things I regularly visit and photograph--Thanks, all, for the kind and generous comments...
It is beautiful. You just want to touch it.
I haven't seen this in person...very cool!
Please continue to take it. I like reflections and definitely find it very original...
It's been love at first sight ever since this sculpture was installed in 2003 (?). Neva, you MUST come downtown and see this next time you can. Clarice, you are right, everyone wants to touch it...and Fabrizio, I will definitely never stop taking photos of this!
Yes!!! The silver jelly bean is still there. I LOVE IT!!!It's like a drop of mercury that would have taken a bad turn. I like that "liquidity" and smoothness to it.
Thanks Eliane, the bean is our favorite "pet" here...
I could spend weeks looking at this from all angles, it must be SOOO fascinating as it reflects and distorts the changes going on around it, brilliant. (Good call to do it in B&W too!)
thank you, Sam
