I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! A personal favorite spot away from the bustling streets of the city is one of our many boat harbors. This photo taken at night with a tripod shows the beautiful reflection of the boats in DuSable Harbor near Lake Shore Drive and the riverwalk. #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! Ask any Chicago-Instagrammer where you can find the cheapest views, and many of us will say parking garages! This parking garage spot by the Merchandise Mart CTA station has become well known to many Chicago locals and photography enthusiasts. Go during sunset and snap a picture of the train when it passes by the ’S’ curve. #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! Here’s one of my favorite aerial views in the city, taken from the 94th floor of the John Hancock building’s observatory (@360chiviews). Visit on a weekday to miss the crowds and avoid waiting in line! #mychicagopix

Good morning! Kicking off the week with this great skyline lake picture by @merisacano. Summer is winding down so get out & soak up the sun! #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! Take in the city from Ping Tom Memorial Park in Chinatown. It overlooks the river and railroad bridge, catching beautiful reflections of the skyline at night. #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram this week! When planning to visit Chicago, consider coming during Chicago Architecture Foundation’s annual “Open House Chicago” weekend, where you’ll gain access to rare views of the city and famous architectural gems, like this view from last year’s Open House Chicago taken from the Aon Center. This year’s Open House Chicago will take place October 15-16. @chiarchitecture #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram starting today and the rest of the week! Next time you’re in town or looking for something adventurous to do, consider catching twilight above Chicago on a private helicopter tour, like I did in this picture from my first helicopter tour this summer. #mychicagopix
