Yep...they call it the "bean". The real name is "Cloudscape" and it is beautiful in real life as well. I was lucky and got there before there were any people around. The down side of that is that you don't get a sense of scale. The object is about as large a 3000 square feet, two story home.

great shots.

Yeah, they sent $25 MILLION dollars on buffing out the seams on that bean.

Al, Great shots and a very interesting approach. I particularly like the last two. I've tried to shoot those views each time I've been to Millennium but have never been successful. You have certainly found the key. The shapes and lines are fantastic.

Ok how the heck do you take a photo of a reflective jelly bean and not cast your reflection in it?

You a vampire? Or did you clone your self out? :biggrin: :smile:

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting on my images. I realize these structures have been shot a million times before. I am trying for a different look and perspective.

I was just lucky in regards to the lack of people/tourists in the scenes. I was there fairly early in the morning but more likely it was due to the extreme cold.....25F. I think the lack of peole add to the drama of the sculpture and the scenes. The B&W treatment with a little blur in the background help as well...at least that is view.

Thanks again,
Al
