I stumbled across this public art sculpture in San Jose off of E Santa Clara Rd. There were actually a few pieces (by the same artist?) along the road. I walked around a little bit after dropping off some film to be developed at Foto Express.
For some reason this photo feels like summer to me. The colorful sculpture kind of reminds me of a kid's toy held high against the sky, or something at a carnival, both of which make me think of a hot summer day.
In the middle of our visit to the Modern Wing at the Art Institute, we got hungry, so made our way over to Millennium Park to find somewhere to eat (the Taste would've been too chaotic). I can't help snapping a couple pics when we pass the Cloud Gate.
