The Cloud Gate … AKA The Bean … Chicago …

_MG_6828-1One morning we were in Chicago we decided to stop by Millennium Park to see the Cloud Gate … or as its more affectionately known as The Bean … I have to say I was quite excited to see the Bean … and I think Perry was rather baffled about why it was so interesting to me … I just really like it …

In any case we finally got there … thankfully it wasn’t too busy when we arrived … although by the time we got to leave it was already significantly busier …

The underside of the Bean was interesting too … I hadn’t seen pictures of it from the underside so that was a surprise …

Finally before we left I took a few steps back to take this Panorama shot of the Bean … click on the image to see it bigger …
