Carlos Barillas

Each week, we feature one Instagram photographer who will get to feature their photos and videos on Choose Chicago's Instagram account all week long, part of our new #TakingOverChooseChicago series. This week, we chose Carlos Barillas. Enjoy!

I’m @visualmonk and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago's Instagram this week. It’s a great honor for me to be taking over the @choosechicago Instagram feed. Join me as I explore this great city of ours and take you through some of my favorite photos! Here we have the #Chicago River overlooking Wolf Point towards the South Branch with the iconic #WillisTower clearly standing tall. The river slices through the downtown skyline starting from Lake Michigan going west until it meets the fork at Wolf Point. The river then goes on to split the city going North and South. This view is just a small part of an amazing skyline that continues to grow and change adding greater depth and character to an already amazing city. #mychicagopix
