I have been fascinated with the Old Crescent ever since I started working for Indiana University. It is the oldest part of campus and an area I tend to frequent often since it is near my office. In the past several years, the university administration has prioritized the reinvigoration of this corner of the IU Bloomington campus. For decades, the old limestone buildings housed primarily administrative offices. In recent years, however, these buildings have been gradually renovated and converted back into classroom buildings. The result is a more student-centric area of campus. This project is one that I tend to focus on more in winter and early spring when my daily work for the university slows. I try to shoot it using a historical aesthetic with an emphasis on the details and textures I find on my frequent jaunts through this beautiful part of campus.

In recent years, heavy snowstorms have been rare in Bloomington. Since my wife and I moved back in 2014, this storm was only the second time that we’ve seen this much snow here in town. This storm reminded me of my time in South Bend where this sort of thing was the rule instead of the exception. The snow is a nice reprieve from the otherwise gray and gloomy Indiana winter we had been experiencing.

I continued to use Instagram in 2017 to challenge myself visually. In recent years, the social network has evolved to become the new equivalent of photo blogs. Despite this, I continue to use it to solely post iPhone photos – and an occasional drone photo. I love Instagram’s emphasis on visual communication. Using the platform challenges me to think visually on a daily basis outside the realm of my normal 3×2 DSL work. It is also a great source of visual inspiration. To have the opportunity to follow the work of other incredible photographers from around the world is a great thrill. Below are a few of my favorite Instagrams from 2016. Thanks for looking.

We spent a few days of our Western U.S. road trip vacation in Yellowstone National Park this summer. I was very struck by the incredible beauty of the place. On our first full day in the park, I was lucky enough to make a few pictures of an eerily-still Yellowstone Lake (first image below). We visited a wide variety of places from geothermal geyser basins to the Lamar Valley, but we left feeling as though we barely scratched the surface. We are very eager to make another trip soon.

During our visit to Yellowstone National Park this summer, my wife and I cut through the Northeast Entrance of the park in order to get back to our cabin outside of Cody, Wyoming. We did this because of construction and closures to the Grand Loop Road, but we were glad we did. The route from the park entrance back to Cody was quite a beautiful – and quiet – drive. In particular, the stretch of Wyoming Highway 296 around Sugarloaf Mountain and Dead Indian Hill were spectacular.
