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 Rosi Rodriguez. Enjoy!
I’m @rrphotograph and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago's Instagram. Here is Chicago's Financial District. The building in the middle is the Chicago Board of Trade building also known as CBOT. Did you know that Chicago has had several movies filmed in the financial district? That's right! Box office hits such as Batman Begins, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight, and The Untouchables are just a few! #Mychicagopix
Did you know that more than 50 million tourists visited #Chicago last year? Chicago has amazing sunsets! Whenever you want to catch the sunset you can walk out to the lake and face West to see the beautiful painted skies!

Did you know that the Chicago River flows for 156 miles? It also flows backwards, away from the lake. Along the river there is a Riverwalk which is a beautiful walkway that is several blocks long! There you'll be able to visit restaurants, you can rent a kayak, ride a bike, or even go on a boat tour! I’m @rrphotograph and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago's Instagram this week! #Mychicagopix
This is known as the Chicago's Willis Tower. It opened in 1973 and used to be known as the tallest building in the world. The building weighs more than 222,500 tons, and it cost more than $175 million to build. It has a skydeck that is open 365 days per year. Did you know that you can climb the skydeck by walking 2,109 stairs? You can do so by registering for the SkyRise Chicago event happening in November 8, 2015!

This is the entrance to the Richard B. Ogilvie Transportation Center. It serves as the terminus for three Metra routes operated by Union Pacific, which bought the Chicago and North Western in 1995. The UP North, Northwest and West lines bring more than 40,000 commuters to the station each weekday! Chicago is considered to have one of the best public transportation systems in the nation!I'm @rrphotograph and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago's Instagram this week! #Mychicagopix
