Da Bean

"No, mister. It won't tell the future - it's just a bean.

Believe it or not, this is *not* posed. The guy just happened to walk up while I was shooting, and while I was tempted to put the camera down until he got out of the shot, something made me keep it up to my eye. Glad I did...". Chicago. Taken by Nat Carling

I have been there and people in the photos makes it all the more fun. You must have been very early or late because I have never seen such a light crowd...or maybe it was just too cold? Fabulous shot!

It was pretty early in the morning, which is definitely a slower time. And yeah, on February 10, it was pretty cold.

I worked across the street for years, and I have lots of fun shots of people "interacting" with the sculpture - it was great to have it to myself for once! Also a great place to take photographs at night or after a snow!

Glad you enjoyed it!
