The Bean and the Bicyclist

Wow, very impressive capture Ralph. Beautiful colour, detail and composition. What is the reflective surface (Bean)? #169932

The reflective object on the left is indeed the Bean. It's actually called Cloud Gate and is a 110 ton sculpture that looks very much like a giant metallic jelly bean, hence the nickname. It offers some great photo ops. Thanks for the comments! #788253

Shot at Chicago's new and highly controversial Millenium Park. It just opened so either it's 4 years too late or 996 years too early!
