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!

Chicago artist Matthew Hoffman has a message -- and an important one for kids to know. It's "You Are Beautiful" and it's written all over the walls of a Rogers Park underpass. Click and smile, folks.

Located at the Morse Avenue Metra underpass, just west of Clark St.
