The Bean

"Cloud Gate, to give it it's correct title is a huge stainless steel construction by artist Anish Kapoor, erected in Millenium Park in the centre of Chicago, Illinois, USA. Originally estimated at $9 million, complications during installation pushed its price up to $23 million!... It is affectionately known as The Bean, or 'That big shiny thing in Millennium Park' and is 66 feet long, 42 feet wide and 33 feet high. You can walk under its middle, and because of its mirror polished surface gives wonderful images. It is great to see and one could waste hours and rolls of film or digital media trying to capture it". Taken by Mike

Chicago look so good in these photographs. I wonder if it look same way with naked eyes or its magic of the lens.
