Thanks again to Marc for this week's prompt

reflections on the bean - - Chicago - 07222006

I'm sure this has an actual name, but Chicagoans call it "the bean." It's a gigantic chrome statue in the shape of a kidney bean. I'd always sneered at the idea of it. I mean, really. A bean? That's the best you can do? C'mon... that's until I saw it in person.

The art isn't the structure itself, but the reflections it gives off. This shot is taken from the underside, looking straight up.
