An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

A year in landscapes

Back in January I was out walking the dogs when I snapped a photo on my phone and posted it to Instagram with the caption “January landscape.” I didn’t know at the time that I was initiating a personal project that would last the entire year. Every month since then I’ve tried to take a photo of a moment outside in Utah that captures what it’s like here that time of year. I suppose I could have taken one photo of a frustrated tourist trying to find liquor on a Sunday and every month just photoshopped some seasonal clothing on his body.

Some months were hugely successful—the photo I posted in October is my most liked photo on Instagram—while other times I’d completely forget that I had given myself this challenge and then scurry around in the last few hours of the last day of the month. I’m looking at you, MAY. Although to be fair I did travel four times that month and most of the landscape I did see was not in Utah AND THOSE ARE THE RULES. According to my butt.

Instagram for me is a playground. It’s a medium where I can learn new tricks and play with apps and learn to frame scenes in squares. I follow a lot of people I do not know, photographers who lead me to other photographers, and I love studying what they have done. Today I wanted to share with you my year in landscapes and point you in the direction of a few of my favorite photographers to follow. Enjoy falling down this rabbit hole:

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
