You know the drill by now—if you’re not following these Tumblrs already, you should be.

A couple poses for photos on the fire escape of an East Lakeview apartment building Saturday, March 22, 2014.

Tribune photographer Brian Cassella snapped this from a balcony in East Lakeview. Know the engaged couple? It’s an amazing photo, and they’d probably love to know it exists, right? 
Get to work, internet.
