BP Bridge, Chicago

I'm wrapping up this Chicago series with this post. I’m thinking of returning sometime later in the spring for some early morning and twilight shots of the lakefront and Millennium Park, hopefully after they’ve finished work on the Cloud Gate sculpture.

This final installment of the Millennium Park series features the BP Bridge, a serpentine, 900 foot walkway of brushed stainless steel that connects Millennium Park to the northern section of Grant Park on Chicago’s Lake Michigan shore. As Steve commented on a previous post, while one can appreciate the artistic merit of the work, it can seem a bit jarring and out of place when juxtaposed with some classic Chicago architecture.

Such is progress.
