Cloud Gate

Being under Cloud Gate provides a completely different experience from seeing on the outside.

While I was in Chicago this past spring I noticed a few things that had changed since the last time I was there.  The most impressive new feature I saw was the sculpture Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor.  Located in the middle of Millennium Park, the huge mirrored form reflects the city all around it like a huge fish-eye lens.  It has an infinite quality to it and appears to have a completely different shape depending on from which angle it is viewed.  Not only does it capture a distorted image of the city, but it also captures the images of the people looking at it.

Salt Lake City

The Great Salt Lake

About a week ago I ended a trip to Salt Lake City.  I was there for a few days doing some commercial work.  When I had a moment, I made it a point to get out and see some of the local scenery.
The Great Salt Lake has an average size of 1700 square miles but is only 30 feet deep.  There are no fish but lots of brine shrimp as I witnessed.  The photo above was taken about 20 miles west of Salt Lake City and was shot digitally in infrared.
