I love my days downtown! That's where I have pretty much an open canvas to work with. The textures, the buildings, the lake..so much to choose from! This is why I will have to open a "Honorable Mentions" category. The days I have photos, some of them are really fun and I don't want to waste them. With that said, this is what made the cut today. I was loving everyone's black and white with a color pop, so this is mine for today.
It's "the Bean" from Grant Park downtown Chicago. Why it's a bean? Nobody knows, but it cost a fortune! Not only to buy, but maintenance. It's a big kidney bean shaped piece of mirrored metal? That's the best way I can describe it, but people come from all over to look at it! Go figure.. I love seeing the buildings reflected. There's also snow laying on it like whipped cream on top, and swiss cheese slapped on the side. :)
