Look Up: Inside the Bean

Back in October of 2009 when M and I spent some time in Chicago, I took a boat load of pictures of The Cloud Gate sculpture (called The Bean by locals) which is located in Millennium Park.  The Look Up theme has given me a chance to display one or two of them.  This photo was taken inside the bean, looking up.  I’m the one in pink.

This photo was also taken from a “look up” perspective in that I was pointing up in order to capture the flare of sunlight on the top.

In other (exciting) news…

I have a new camera!  Yay!  I think it’s going to take a few days for the camera and I to adjust to each other so it may be a while before anything new shows up here at the blog.

For those inquiring minds that want to know, I went with the newest Kodak (the Z981).  I’ve had good results with my old Kodak and this suited my budget and my current needs (with a better zoom and the ability to shoot in RAW format).  After much thought I decided I didn’t want to go with high-end, expensive equipment.  I’d spend too much time worrying about losing it, having it stolen, breaking it, etc.
