Weekend Reflections: The Bean



Another couple of pictures from my winter vacation in Chicago. I took my oldest grandson to visit the "Bean" in Millennium Park, which was just a few blocks from our hotel. The first shot is our reflection standing almost under it. Behind us is the outdoor ice skating rink and Michigan Avenue. The second shot is my grandson standing next to it patiently waiting for me to take his picture so he could go play in the snow. To see more wonderful reflections from just about everywhere, visit Weekend Reflections.

Great reflection seeing the skyline (and the pretty blue sky). It's cool how there's snow on the bean adding to the picture.

I bet your grandson's dog Annie knows her name quite well. :)

I love these reflective shots. We lived in the Chicago area in the late 60s. That was before the Bean, so we've never seen it. It's quite a marvel of engineering!

I haven't seen it myself, of course, but I've seen it from time to time in pictures or movies. It's a peculiar sculpture, but I like it.

The bean is on my bucket list.

Great shots, Lois. A strange sculpture but there it is. MB

I found your story about the boat and snake fascinating. Water moccasins are so bad - they're the only snake I know of that will chase humans. They will drop from trees into a boat or climb into a boat from the water. And they're deadly. We had lots of them in Texas!

Now THAT'S the perfect foil for reflections Lois, you can have such fun with the 'Bean' :)

Now I feel better. My immediate reaction was, "Hey! These can't be from Florida!" Chicago!
