  • Of course I had to take a selfie here. This is a big piece of art on the Millenium park. An icon in chicago  more »
  • A complete embarrassment to art and architecture built right in the center of the city. Pure narcissism.  more »

  • A beautiful bean, mixed with some great views makes this one of the coolest spots in the city. If you have a hour lunch it's worth it to come down here and eat your lunch with a view. Beautiful structure not to mention the surrounding area having hundreds of different things. Mini-golf, ice skating, rock climbing, etc. Cool park with cool activities.
  • This incredible sculpture which is usually misnamed the bean. Is actually called the gateway cloud. I've been photographing it for many years. Is a fabulous refractive surface which shows all of the buildings on Michigan Avenue in a brilliant uplifting way. Chicago has many great attributes this is certainly one of them. I recommend it strongly that you see this for yourself welcome to Chicago!
