My Best Photos of 2017

The other day I shared my recap of 2017 — moments spent with friends and family, on adventures, and at work.

Now I’ve culled through all the photos I took this past year and pulled my best images. These are full photos instead of collages. Everything is captioned and presented by geographic location.

Without further ado, here are my best photos of 2017!
