A few tourists have swung through town over the past few weeks, and they've taken some pretty killer bean shots to prove it. Brooklynite Bao Nguyen shot this photograph while breezing through town on a road trip to Minnesota, creating a photoset called Manifest Destiny. Although a number of cool shots exist in the set, this one, despite the dirty sensor spots, gets our top vote for reminding us that the silver tourist trap has some genuine artistic merit.

Focus, People, Focus is a weekly photography feature that features a photograph taken by a reader of the site. If you'd like a chance to have your photo featured on Friday as part of Focus, People, Focus, upload your photo to Flickr and tag it with "Chicagoist".
