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!

“Smile – Let It Be Your Character” – Bucktown 

Ali 6 is a Chicago based street artist who hand illustrates and paints his imaginary best friend “Richie” the raccoon into his murals that appear across the city. You’ll find Richie near the corner of Fullerton and Maplewood in West Bucktown. “Smile – Let it be your character” reminds us all that a smile can go a long way in making and keeping friends and living life with an extra dose of happy.
