Weekend Reflections



I thought the sky looked pretty reflected in the Cloud Gate sculpture, commonly called "the Bean", in Millennium Park in Chicago. I'm one of the tiny little people in the reflection way back there taking the picture. I also like the way that building behind it kind of sneaked into the reflection at the top. If you like reflections, be sure to visit Weekend Reflections for more wonderful pictures.

Wow! I am so impressed by your photography of the windy city! This one is simply gorgeous. Sorry about your daughter...her loss, I think. But kids! Sheesh!

I can't remember many specifics of the theaters we went to except like you said of the Oriental - they were gorgeous!

I always thought it interesting that mosquitoes in the northlands were so darn huge! Once the sun set in Minnesota, head for the house!

You've outdone yourself! I love this reflection! The pretty blue sky, the clouds and that amazing city all in that great reflection!

Lowell said...

Hi again! Thanks for your most interesting comments today. I don't see the interest in mud bogging either. But, if you're young and not too smart...

What you said about your ex reminded me of a cop who would stop in my office in Pembroke Pines occasionally in the afternoons about an hour or so before he went off duty. He'd sit and drink coffee and chat. When I asked why he did this he said he was trying to avoid the bad guys because he didn't want to have to do all the paperwork involved. :-)

Leif Hagen said...

What a great photo, Lois! I've seen that bean in other photos and must see it for live for myself someday!

One of the reasons I love Chicago is their sculptures and architecture! Perfect day for a wonderful reflection shot!
