Alien extraterrestrial mother ship? Not quite, it’s an interesting sculpture at Chicago’s Millennium Park. “Cloud Gate” is by British artist Anish Kapoor’s and it is his first public outdoor work. Wow, 110 tons of stainless steel, this isn’t going to fly into the air anytime soon.

That’s really wonderful! I’d like to have one of these pods in my garden! Nice photography!

Yes Zep, it would look nice in my garden as well unfortunately there wouldn’t be much of a garden left. Also the neighbors would be suspicious.

3. Zep - April 5, 2007

Yes – the same applies to my yard. But I think especially the neighbors would be fun. When chatting with them, I’d suddenly would look up in the starry night and sigh. Or sometimes my wife and me would talk in a totally strange language with clicking and hissing sounds in it…
Oh, what fun we could have!
