    Cloud Gate is a three-story steel sculpture that has been dubbed "The Bean" by Chicagoans, because of its legume-like shape.

    Who knew "The Bean" is actually/officially called Could Gate??? Did you know that this is made up of 168 stainless steel plates welded together? It's highly polished, so you can't see the seams.

    Best early in the morning- better light and fewer crowds. Use a tripod and ND filter for longer exposures to blur the people moving. Melhor visto de manhã. Menos multidão. Use um filtro ND e um tripé. Read more
