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.
Gone to See Iceland 2014 – Winter Photography Trip. Day 3: Reykjavik.
I spent the much of the morning at the Solar Voyager (Sólfar) sculpture with the goal of making a time-lapse video of people visiting the sculpture. Hopefully, someday I will have time to process the images. While working on this four women with Viking helmets came up to me and asked me to take their picture in front of the sculpture. All in the days work of a photographer… Further down the walking path along Sæbraut street on the Reykjavik coastline is The Partnership sculpture.

Sun Voyager (Sólfar). Winter in Reykjavik. From Wikipedia “Sun Voyager is a dreamboat, an ode to the sun. Intrinsically, it contains within itself the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom.” Last summer when I visited Reykjavik there were many people surrounding the sculpture, and even more taking pictures. This morning it was snowing and cloudy. The sun started to come out and I found myself alone at the site. Within 5 minutes many more came and I was no longer alone. Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 mirrorless camera and 12 mm f/2.8 Zeiss lens (ISO 200, 12 mm, f/2.8, 1/3500 sec).
