Crown Fountain in Millenium Park Chicago

This is one of the Crown Fountains in Millennium Park, Chicago. The red glow in this photo is from that large image! It’s actually a video, the person pictured smiles and changes expression every few seconds, and the face changes on a regular basis.
I didn’t know this was here at all, but it made up for the fact that The Bean was closed for renovation when we visited. I was really looking forward to that. We’ll have to visit Chicago again!

    The colour is great! You get such a sense of scale with the person standing beside it.

    What an interesting fountain, and one that I actually find a bit weird. 🙂

    I came back to see, and how cool is the answer? I’ve seen the “wall of image” or whatever it is properly named, and you are the only one who’s used it so creatively. Very well done!

    Super shot, like the figure to give it scale. The reflections are a bonus. Big brother, Orwell’s 1984.
