This is hardly a great shot, and will probably end up scrapped. But I didn't see one quite like it in a search of DA, though, so I thought it was worth putting up here, at least for now.

I did find a few good ones in my search, though:

Anyway, this is the "bean" sculpture in Chicago's Millenium Park, known properly as Cloud Gate. Not the most technically brilliant shot in the world but it is a good representation of the wild distortion it provides the world around it.

That is weird with that thing under there. Was that some special installment they had after the Sox won?

It really isn't that bad of a shot man. The composition is pretty good actually. Everything is nice and crisp.

They were doing some kind of repair or cleaning work to it, I don't really know. This was shot during the World Series, so they just stuck the banner in there because they could.

Thanks for the compliment!

Oh, they were filling in the seams and polishing them. When the sculpture was first up you could still see all of the seams from the panels.

Oh, gotcha. I remember that now from the first time I saw it, back in 2004.

But it's just so uninteresting to me, relative to the ones I linked in my comments. :(

A fish eye lense on that thing would be the cat's meow wouldn't it?

Really would be. Wish I could a) afford one b) had an opportunity to go back to Chicago again in the near future. :)
