A visit to Chicago isn’t complete without seeing the Cloud Gate, nicknamed The Bean, at Millennium Park. Even though Boston, Massachusetts is technically bean town, Chicagoans are very proud of this amazing sculpture, created by Anish Kapoor. People crowd around the Cloud Gate to take selfies of their reflection. We also found the underside fascinating. This photo was taken looking up at the center from underneath the arch.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF REFLECTIVE SURFACES.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

A fascinating reflection, Nancy. It must be a very popular sculpture. Great that you could get a close-up. 🙂
Thanks, Sylvia. It was very crowded that day, but we were able to get close to it.

I love all kind of reflections – nice challenge. It is an interesting angle for the reflection in The Bean. Like an abstract art.
In a Chilean winery there are reflections everywhere: in the bottles, in the glasses, even in the spilled wine!
I like you shot! Here is my attempt at playing with some glassware. https://michellelunatophotography.wordpress.com/2016/04/19/reflective-a-photo-a-week-challenge/
