2017 Year in Instagrams

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. Please consider following me on Instagram: @jamesbrosher.

Yellowstone National Park

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.

Shoshone National Forest

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.

Black Hills and Badlands of South Dakota

Several months belated, I am now working through images I captured during a road trip my wife and I took to South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado to kick off our summer. The first leg of our journey included a couple days in Custer, South Dakota. During our time there we visited Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Memorial, Wind Cave National Park and Custer State Park.

Potpourri of the Arts

The annual Potpourri of the Arts concert showcases ensembles at the Indiana University African American Arts Institute. Since 1993, the shows have embodied the spirit of African American performance at IU AAAI via its three ensembles: the African American Dance Company, the African American Choral Ensemble and the IU Soul Revue.
