Photo hunt : shiny

Unfortunately I haven't had any time to take new pictures, so here are some older shots of somewhat shiny...the cloud gate in Chicago. I know I've posted them before, but it works. This set was taken last year and it was rainy and cold. Therefore the "bean" isn't as brilliant. If anyone has seen it for themselves on a bright and sunny day, the sight is wonderful.

Wow, if it looks so shiny on a cloudy, rainy day, it must be amazing on a sunny day. Great photos!

It's still plenty shiny! Is it blinding when the sun hits it just right? :D

Those are great photos. My favorite is the first one. I'm not too fond of the rain but it seems the rainy season is here.

BTW, the pineapples in my photo are symbols of prosperity.

Oh I love you photos.

The reflection of you in the bean was so clear that I thought the rain was refracting the image!

I can just imagine the glare off the bean on a sunny day. Nice photos.
