Lonely Bean

This is the ‘Cloudscape’ sculpture (titled ‘Cloud Gate’) in Millennium Park in downtown Chicago.  Every time that I’ve gone to make an image of it, there was always a crowd of tourists and  photographers with tripods at the ready.  It’s fun to watch the tourists as they use the sculpture like a ‘fun house’ mirror.

I’ve wanted to make an image of the Bean without any people around it so I figured that sunrise would have a minimum number of spectators and indeed, there were only a dozen or so there last Saturday morning.  After some processing of a few exposures, I was able to come up with this image of the Bean all by itself seemingly waiting for the onslaught of the day’s visitors.
