Da Bean

Bean, night, blahblahblah

So we got the Bean (sorry, Cloudgate) and everybody took a million pictures of it and I was like, “I’m not going to be part of the herd, no need to shoot a million pictures of a big mirror” and there was the whole copyright controversy and I was like, “screw the man, I’m gonna go take a million pictures of it” and then they put a big sheet over it and you couldn’t see it for, like, the whole summer and then they were (mostly) done and I was over at The Green in Grant Park for a wedding over the weekend (whee! miniature golf!) and we came wandering back through Millennium Park and I snapped some shots and looked in the view finder and realized the deal with the Bean.

The deal with the Bean is that you can take a crappy camera and sort of wave it in the general direction of the Bean with your eyes closed and you take, every time, a freakin’ awesome picture. It’s magical.

(The bottom of the Bean is back under the sheet, so they can polish the “Omphalos,” which is the Greek word for navel, or as we say in the Chicago, the “belly.”)
