Flickr is full of plenty of gorgeous photos of Chicago. From sweeping cityscapes to moody lake shots, and from compelling street portraiture to gritty "L" photos, you can easily fall in love with the city through some magical photos.

But we know Chicago isn't just the tourist-sating, "pretty" images. It's also the crazy and bizarre sights you see on a daily basis. And that, friends, is why we adore ankylosaur's photo from Logan Square. A half-naked couple against an '80s-style beach background, seemingly set to the strains of "Let's Get It On": making us love Chicago just as much as some of the most classic photos of the city.
