A Word-A-Week Photo Challenge: Underneath

Sue Llewelynn’s challenge for the week is the word Underneath.

Am lucky to have taken a photo of the ceiling of the library at the Mundelein Seminary. The structure is new but even with this old world touch of an ornately decorated ceiling, in general the interior decoration is highly moderated so much so that it is not overpowering. I was awestruck by its grandeur as I view it underneath.

The Bean

The Bean

Underneath the Cloud Gate or as we Chicagoans fondly call The Bean, is a dizzyingly abstract of one’s self. It is just totally different experience from when one views the sculpture from the outside. I tip my hat off to Anish Kapoor whose genius created this wonderful masterpiece for Millennium Park in Chicago.

Here’s a photo of the Cloud Gate, if you haven’t seen it yet.

    Isnt that library so beautiful, and the contrast between the old and the new is so seamless! medyo freaky nga lang sa gabi… i used to be a student librarian there.

    I think any library is freaky when you are by yourself at night. I would feel that all the book characters would come to life.

    I think it will have to be next weekend! I bet the leaves will be past their peak after that.
