Look Up: Inside the BeanPosted: May 13, 2010 Filed under: Adventures in art, Adventures in Life, Art, Autumn, NaBloPoMo, Photography, travel | Tags: camera, Chicago, Look Up, sculptures 6 Comments
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.
