PHOTO HUNTERS




This week's theme is SILVER

This is a shot of the Kidney Bean in Millenium Park in Chicago. I was standing under the bean shooting up. I thought the reflection and distortion was a great element in this photo.





Did you play?

That indeed is a great composition - love the uniqueness of it. Great pick for this week's hunter theme.

I think that we really live in a very boring place (although the Grand Canyon is awesome)...
Have a great weekend...

This is a VERY cool shot. The perspective makes me dizzy but it is still a cool shot. I would probably have to sit down on a bench to look at it this way... a kidney bean, you say! It must not have been there the last time I was in Chicago or I missed it.

That is very cool. I can't tell what it is, but very cool and silvery, lol. Thanks for sharing.

I love this: a different perspective! GReat work!

sarala said...

Nice shot. Isn't the bean great! I have several shots of it but none from inside.

For other commenters--the real name is "Cloud Gate" but everyone seems to call it the bean.

Pamela said...

What an intriguing photo! It really captures ones imagination! :)

jenny said...

That was very cool! I also don't know what the Kidney Bean is---but I also have never been into Chicago proper. Thanks for sharing!

Tricia said...

You're right great minds do think alike. Mines of the outside and yours is the bottom or underside. I have at least 10 photos of it in my flickr account- including one very similar to this one. :)
