Why do these keep making the front page? If you Google image "The Bean" there's literally thousands of photos like this one.

This is simply amazing!
I'm in highschool and I'm taking Photography I, hoping to make it to Studio Photography by my Senior year. What kind of camera was this taken from? I absolutely adore it!

this makes me think that they have someone to by to polish it once in awhile, because while i was there, fingerprints were aaaallllll over the darn thing, and dozens of people were there.

When was this taken? This summer? Last time I took the South Shore Line to the museum, The Bean was covered in pidgin crap and had been tagged. Good to see Chicago is using its budget for something good, instead of horrible Batman remakes.
