Playing on the beach? Been there, snapped that. Monkeying around at the playground? Yep, took that pic a billion times. If you need fresh photo ideas — and some new fodder for your Instagram feed — get a change of scenery and check out Chicago’s awesome street art. We think outdoor murals are the new photo studios and, whether you hire a pro or do the snapping yourself, you’ll love the color and urban edge. We took to the streets (and peeped some very amazing Instagram feeds) to bring you this list. Click through and get those smiles ready!

RV Mural – West Town

Instagrammer extraordinaire Second City Mom has a thing for walls and we're so glad she does because it's given us so many photo ideas. This one in West Town is a confection of pink and turquoise that will make kiddos think of a crazy cartoon.

Located off Chicago Ave. on Lessing St.
