Cloud Gate (aka:The Bean) and the Buckingham Fountain April 23, 2011

From Wikipedia....Cloud Gate, a public sculpture by Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor, is the centerpiece of the AT&T Plaza in Millennium Park within the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois, United States.

Buckingham Fountain is a Chicago landmark in the center of Grant Park. Dedicated in 1927, it is one of the largest fountains in the world. Built in a rococo wedding cake style and inspired by the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles, it is meant to allegorically represent Lake Michigan. It is operated from April to October, with a periodic water show and evening color light show. During the winter, the fountain is decorated with festival lights.
