I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram this week! I have to add this special spot to my favorite places to visit in Chicago— the Kinzie Street Railroad bridge. Chicago is home to the most active drawbridges in the world, and at the Kinzie lookout, you can experience what it’s like to be standing beneath this massive structure when opened up. And the best thing is, you can go anytime! #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! This picture looking down LaSalle Street in Chicago’s financial district looks like a scene out of a Hollywood movie. #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! Book a flight above the city and experience breathtaking aerials of Lake Michigan and all the architecture along Lake Shore Drive and Chicago’s Loop. #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram this week! Navy Pier is on my list of places to visit when coming to Chicago. Bonus: we got a new Ferris wheel this summer too! @navypierchicago #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! This photo of mine was taken along North Avenue Beach at night and I always love going back to this spot. #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! I’m sure you’ve heard of “The Bean”, but have you seen it at night too? Pro-tip: Millennium Park is open everyday from 6am-11pm, so try getting there super early or before closing time so you can try snapping a picture when no one is in the frame. @millennium_park #mychicagopix

I’m @PleasantPhoto and I’m #TakingOverChooseChicago’s Instagram! If you’re looking to take an architecture tour along the river, there are several trips along the river to relax on the water and see the world-class architecture of Chicago from one of the best ways possible. #mychicagopix

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
