Weekend Reflections--Cloud Gate
Even though I have been back from my trip to Chicago for almost a week now, I have finally had time to go through my pictures and this week I will be posting a few of them. These pictures seemed perfect for the Weekend Reflections meme and even though it doesn't look like a Christmas reflection, the pictures were taken right before Christmas so I hope that is OK with James! This is the Cloud Gate sculpture located in Millenium Park in downtown Chicago. It was very cloudy, windy (of course) and cold that day. The first picture gives you an idea of how big it is. I am one of the little dots way back there in the distance. The second shot shows me taking a picture of myself from a little closer. You can see some snow on the ground, the ice skating rink and Michigan Avenue behind me. The third shot is me right up there next to the sculpture. I had to take one of my gloves off to be able to operate my camera and by the time I took that last picture, I could barely feel my fingers. Thanks goodness for ear muffs!
