[77] March 18 -- A boy and his reflection, the Bean, Chicago

The details

On a rare visit downtown Chicago, my husband and I stopped at the Bean for some quick shots.  I was standing along the edge of the garden area (about 50 feet away) and people-watching.  I had already attached my telephoto lens in hopes of getting some candid shots, when I spotted this little boy who was fascinated with his reflection.  I shot a series of three images, and chose this one with his hands touching his reflection.  I applied a pre-set "yesteryear" edit to bump up the yellows/oranges, tweaked the clarity a bit, then vignetted the image.
