Without a doubt, the best place in Chicago to people watch is at Cloud Gate more commonly known as The Bean. It has a magnetic personality that attracts people from all over the world. It seems they come to look at themselves in its mirror surface where they see themselves as if they were in a mirror fun house. I like it for the distorted reflections, especially when clouds are gracing the sky. It reminds of surrealistic paintings, one of my favorite painting genres.
