Eleven-Years Ago (26-March-2007) — Illinois

Gone to See America 2007. Springtime in Chicago.

Walkabout in Millennium Park during time off from the American Chemical Society spring national meeting. The “Cloud Gate” also known as “The Bean” is quite an attraction. I was able to take a mirror “selfie” with the city in the background. Someday, I would like to go back and do a time-lapse video of people interacting with the sculpture. The images in the two slide-shows have been reprocessed using new software. Individual images can be viewed here. Let me know if you find the two out-of-place images.
