Alphabetical Cities week 3: C for Chicago

Chicago, USA – Reflection in the Cloud Gate (or “The Bean”), a public sculpture in Chicago (taken on April 18, 2009)

Time to revive Picture Worthy! New photo project for 2021: Alphabetical Cities. There are 52 weeks in a year and 26 letters in the alphabet, so I thought that this would be perfect for posting a photo of a previously visited city in alphabetical order, once a week for two rounds. This is slightly different from the previous “Letters of the Alphabet” series as it will pertain to cities only. Here we go again 😉

Mar 10, 2015 – [Tuesday] Black & White: The Bean

Chicago, USA, taken on April 18, 2009

I’ve always known this sculpture in Chicago as “The Bean” and only found out through Wikipedia today that its actual name is “Cloud Gate”. Sorry, The Bean just sounds so much more descriptive of the shape of the thing. And to be honest, the more I look at it, the more it looks like a really comfortable bean bag flipped upside down. There’s no escaping the “bean” 😉 (See the original photo in colour.)
