Cloud Gate in Chicago's Millennium Park

I visited Chicago’s happy place yesterday, Cloud Gate in Millennium Park, and captured this image. Many cities likely have such places – those where everyone who congregates wears a smile. Sometimes people visit in good spirits. Other times, people arrive grouchy, and the chosen location only half lives up to its job of cheering people up for the day. But this magical place, “The Bean,” always seems to make everyone smile. Everywhere you look, people seem to be in absolute delight. Who knew something colloquially named after a vegetable could create such wonder?
