Darbe Images: My Favorite Photos of 2017

Two thousand and seventeen was a whopper of a year. Things are really Trumped up right now. We can't say goodbye soon enough it seems.

Though, I actually had a splendid go at it in 2017. I moved again, for the first time in about 7 years. Love the new place! I went over 1K followers on Instagram for the first time. A small but proud accomplishment. Meeting John Paul Pitts(Singer - Surfer Blood), Mayim Bialik(actress - Big Bang Theory) and Colin Kaepernick(NFL quarterback and activist) was pretty cool. I had the pleasure of meeting Colin twice this year actually. This was especially gratifying. I've been a fervent supporter of his protest of police brutality against blacks in the U.S., for a few years. I spent some quality time in Chicago, Denver, upstate New York, and Miami this year. Got to see family, some old friends and hung out with a few new ones, in my travels. 2017 was not only a lot of fun, but very productive for me as well. I'm expecting bigger things in 2018 and can't wait.

In case you missed my social media posts, here's a few of my favorite shots from 2017.
