Photo Friday: Chicago's Cloud Gate

The Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago's Millennium Park is a huge mirrored gateway that reflects the Chicago skyline and the images of anyone who passes by. I took this quick snapshot of D and I as we passed underneath the "gate." Good thing I was quick, she allowed me about 30 seconds to take the shot before demanding that she be allowed to run circles around the sculpture.

Thank goodness kids are allowed to yell, screech and run when they are outdoors... she had a wonderful time and wore herself out just in time for a nap.

    This is a lovely natural shot - I love the distortion from the mirror and the expression on D's face.

    I love shots like these from unusual angles. Hope the rain is letting up for you on this trip :)

    Glad you had some good weather. That sculpture is completely cool.

    In your honor, I posted a Chicago picture too!

    I love that sculpture! I've followed Mara's lead, and posted a Chicago photo, taken not far from yours, also in Millennium Park.

    Cloud Gate sure is a funny euphemism for "mirrored jelly bean"!

    Thanks for the real-time picture.
