Wordless Wednesday Link Up: Cloud Gate in Chicago's Millennium Park


By on 1/11/2017 11:48:00 AM

I am running late with this week's Wordless Wednesday post--but, I guess it's better late than never, right?  One of the the highlights of 2016 was a visit to Chicago over Thanksgiving weekend--and some of our favorite photos from that trip came from an outing to the city's Millennium Park and its Cloud Gate.  I wanted to share a couple of Cloud Gate photos for this week's Wordless Wednesday Link Up!    Enjoy--and don't forget to link up your latest Wordless Wednesday posts at the end of this post!


Cloud Gate in Chicago's Millennium Park

 I love unique architecture and sculptures--and city skylines.  This view was perfect.



...And this view put the sculpture (and its iconic bean shape) into perspective within its surroundings. Every shot from different angles gives a different view of the surrounding buildings.

 ....and the required "reflection selfie" from "inside" the Cloud Gate...

If you haven't visited Millennium Park or Cloud Gate--I just posted some things I think you should know about visiting Millennium Park in Chicago with kids... here.

If you have gone--what did you think of Cloud Gate and Millennium Park?

    1. Getting everyone (self included) to pose for a picture is a feat in itself--so that alone made it memorable! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. We will probably go again this year--it looks like we have at least one Chicago trip on the "list". We need to try out the trains this year! That would be an adventure too!

  6. Whenever I go to Chicago, I always try to go to Millennium Park and see the Cloud Gate. I find it and the reflections it produces fascinating.

  7. AJ, This is a cool sculpture! I like how you can see the city's reflection in it and it makes for a great photo-op. We passed through Chicago in 2000 during the night headed to St. Louis from Michigan. DH left one job interview for another in Missouri on that trip. All we could see was the south side of the city, which wasn't much the way I remember it. Just endless lights! It would be kind of nice to visit again when we could see stuff during the day. :) Thanks for popping over for a visit yesterday!

    1. This is our second trip to Chicago--and our situation was essentially like your drive through last time. We arrived too late (too dark) and our trip was too "scheduled"...so we added an extra day this year to actually visit a couple of sites.
