Photographer's Note

This magnificent architecture, Cloud Gate, is located in Millenium Park, Chicago. It maps the skyline, the downtown buildings and the visitors on the same surface. Hence, as the name implies, it is a gate to the clouds...Indeed, there were no clouds when I took the picture :((

"Millennium Park is an award-winning center for art, music, architecture and landscape design."

"Cloud Gate is British artist Anish Kapoor's first public outdoor work installed in the United States. The 110-ton elliptical sculpture is forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect the city's famous skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch provides a "gate" to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture, inviting visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives.

Inspired by liquid mercury, the sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high."
