This is the first time I've been to Millennium Park since winter began. What's great about the cold is that nobody is standing around to be in my shot :) I sure hope the "bean" survives the freezing weather ahead, it's definitely one of my favorite things to photograph in the city.

sweet shot. the bean looks like a vessel from the outer limits. you're right too about the absence of people...gives it an eerie quality.

Wow....its hard to take a "new" picture of the bean, but you've definitely done it. Your reflection in a bright pool light is a nice touch :)

You must work somewhere near me because a lot of your shots seem to come from the loop. As for this photo, it is awesome. I can't believe that no one was around for you to take this.

PS - I added you to the blogroll over at chicago photobloggers

I've seen quite a few photos of this popping up on blogs recently, but all of them had been during the day, taking the pic at night was a GREAT idea!

absolutely beautiful. the colors and the lighting seem so crisp and otherworldly...it's hard to believe that the photo was taken on this planet! i love this sculpture, btw...
