It’s always happening: While scrolling through our Instagram feeds, we come upon a shot of gorgeous white lamp posts lined up like soldiers. Yes, it’s a dreamy backdrop for the perfect snap; but it’s also an art installation called “Urban Light” by late artist Chris Burden at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA to locals). We’re always double-tapping these beautiful shots, so we’re naming it one of the most Instagrammable places in the world. Check out nine of our favorite shots, below.

Those red shorts really pop against the stark white pillars of those lights.

2. @Tryahlove
We’re all about yoga, anywhere, any time—especially with a backdrop like this.
3. @trusthopelove
Is it just us, or is this installation a great place to sneak in a little subtle PDA?

4. @po.stagram
Black and white looks really good on these.

We love this installation this much, too.

This reminds us of that really annoying Windows 98 freeze thing.

Those white lamp posts echo the LA palm trees.
