The Posers

What’s happening? Yesterday my post had a half of a person in it, and today there are two whole people. Wow. Believe me, I am as surprised by this as you are.

I sat in this spot for a while, watching a steady stream of people perch on that stone ledge to have their photo taken. Most of them were in poses similar to the one here, which made me start to wonder how they all know that’s The One Right Way To Sit – is there a guidebook or something?

But these two had an added value, of a sort, with the photo-taker also striking a pose.

City in the sky: Cloud Gate

My favorite time to photograph the famous Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago is when the light and sky are just right and the edges of the sculpture blur into the sky. Like this.

Also: look! A person!

Kind of like a mural

The view from my hotel room in Chicago offered a view of the office building across the street; it was like a mural, only one that changed from minute to minute. If my trip had been a couple of days longer, I would have started to figure out whose schedule demanded late hours at the office.

Cloud Gate: disappearing against the sky

I had a free morning the other day in Chicago and so I wandered over to see what was going on in Millennium Park.

Now I can’t decide which I like better – the way the red leaves are reflected in Cloud Gate, or the way the sculpture itself disappears against the sky…
