Where is the best background in Chicago to take a picture in front of?

“I may be biased, but I’m pretty sure it’s the views of downtown from the roof of the Italian American Sports Hall of Fame.” — Lea Grover, Becoming SuperMommy

“If it’s not too crowded, in front of Cloud Gate, nicknamed the ‘Bean’ sculpture in Millennium Park. In the right light, clouds and nearby buildings are reflected in the surface and it’s brilliant. After it was unveiled, the Bean became an instant Chicago icon.” — Terry Parrilli, Very Terry

“The lake!!!” — Ana Martin Sagredo, Foreign Affairs: Children Edition

“In front of Man Enters the Cosmos, the giant equatorial sundial bronze sculpture by Moore. It sits on the lakefront outside the Adler Planetarium so you have two beautiful backgrounds- the sculpture and the Adler or the sculpture and the skyline!” — Sophie Sanchez, Cosmic Chicago

“The original Chicago Water Tower on Michigan Avenue.” — Susan Schulhof, Looking for the Good
