I Heart - Black and White

The theme this week over at I Heart Faces is scenic black and white photography.  It took me some searching but I finally found what I think is the best picture I have to enter. 
I took this in Chicago a few years back in Millennium Park. The park is on Michigan Ave in the heart of the downtown.  They have a gigantic metal bean in the park.  It is probably one of the coolest places to take pictures.  It's huge, it's reflective, and you can get some awesome pictures of the skyline.

I love this one because you have the awesome view of the buildings on Michigan Ave and can see all the people walking around the bean, someone them you can also see their reflection in the bean.

To see more scenic black and white photos head on over to I Heart Faces!

Nice shot! Way to get the skyline to be horizontal in the bean. I love the stillness of the city paired with the busyness of Millennium park

Ah yes!! I know, I had a couple of the bean I considered too. It's a photographer's playground for sure! Yours is gorgeous!

This is really wonderful! I love that the "scenery" is in the reflection as much as the foreground.
