Bean-lieve it

Today, my friend Paige and I played tourists and headed downtown with cameras around our necks to get some shots of the Chicago Bean.
If you’ve never see it, you need to.
I plan to have an exact replica of it built and put in my backyard someday when I’m older.

Over the course of living in Chicago, I have taken numerous pictures of the bean-
so this go round, I wanted to get a different type of photo out of our excursion.
This is what I like to call a sloppy photo. (one of my favorite types of pictures)
The blurrier the better. The shapes and organic nature of lights, darks, and reflections have a beauty that is easily overlooked.
The less clear and more abstract an image becomes- the more beautiful it can be for what each person brings to the photo through their own interpretation.

I adore that in some of the shadows I see monsters and skulls.
What do you see?

    I saw The Bean in person about six weeks ago. LOVED it! I think I appreciated it even more when I got home & saw my photos. Amazing design & the reflections are unexpected & stunning! And cool!
    Very fun of you to sightsee in your own city. Very cool pics. Thx for the great post!
