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!

“Greetings From” Mural – Logan Square

Who needs postcards when you have this awesome piece of street art. This new beauty was created by Greetings From, a collaboration between graffiti artist Victor Ving and photographer Lisa Beggs. They had a mission to create these murals in American towns for a year straight and, luckily, Chicago was on their list. Say hello from Chicago, even if you're not a tourist.

Located along the Blue Line tracks, off the intersection of Milwaukee Ave. and Prindiville St.
