Google has started putting users' pictures on the map at Panoramio. Of course Chicago's most popular destinations have lots of photos, but so do neighborhoods and the suburbs. I particularly liked this group of shots that have both Superdawg and the Niles YMCA Leaning Tower, as well as this one, taken near where I live. Flickr has a similar service, but there aren't nearly as many photos.
