The Bean, Chicago, IL

My family and I caught a red-eye flight from San Francisco to Chicago last night. After catching about two solid hours of sleep on the plane we spent all day doing a whirlwind tour of the city. This included an architectural boat tour on the Chicago River, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Taste of Chicago (an outdoor food festival), and of course the Cloud Gate pictured here. This super-reflective, bean-shaped sculpture is especially delightful for someone with a camera; the way it distorts reflections of the city skyline makes it hard not to find an interesting angle.
