Photo of "Cloud Gate" - a sculpture in Chicago's Millenium Park; inspired by the metal Mercury, and made up of polished stainless steel plates.

Nothing extraordinary - I just loved the way a building's reflection appeared as a curved wall of another building that is not reflected (get what I mean?) - it looked like it was warped!!!

Chicago!! Right? The photo seems a little out of focus to me, or noisy, or pixelated. Something, not sure. I like the composition though.
