Our Instagram followers are seriously talented! We're constantly impressed by the fabulous photos we see pop up in our feed, taken by our very own followers. This is a run-down of some posts that we found particularly inspiring in 2017.
In Ypsilanti, there's plenty of life to capture on film. Whether your subjects are #dogsofypsi in Riverside Park, local brews from Unity Vibration, or family and friends gathered together at DIYpsi or one of the many epic auto shows, it's YOU that makes #ypsireal the vibrant and authentic community that it is. Thanks for sharing your photos with us and helping us to tell the story of our historic, delicious, artistic, progressive city.

After the holidays, when the weather is cold, Cultivate Coffee & Taphouse keeps things cozy with coffee, beer, knitting, and TONS more. Thanks to @wanna.pizza.this for sharing this pic.
Depot Town is one of the most photogenic spots in Ypsilanti. We love this photo from @myfriendmish!
Do you zip around #ypsireal on a bike, skateboard, classic car, or on foot? @eatonjb has this gorgeous machine for trips around Ypsilanti.
Eastern Michigan University has a gorgeous campus. Instagram user @s.dotimas had a beautiful view for this photo — can you find the Water Tower as well?
Summer is the perfect time to grab a sweet treat in #ypsireal ... but then again, who doesn't love Go Ice Cream! year-round? Thanks @alanden51!
The Huron River is a gem of Ypsilanti. We love this pic from @esweet71.
@sethbstop captured these unreal clouds over the Water Tower for a seriously funky photo.
The art around Ypsilanti is inspiring and unique. We love this shot from @allietravelstheworld, taken in Frog Island Park.
Ollie Food & Spirits is one of the best spots in town. @kristamaggard stopped by this year for a cocktail ... and we hope she tried the "Board of Things" — it's our favorite!
#DogsofYpsi is a thing. Ypsilantians love their pooches! This precious Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Pippa, spent some time earlier this year exploring EMU's campus.
But ... we couldn't just post one #dogsofypsi photo. Here, @sadie_the_lovablepup perches on the famous big yellow chair in Riverside Park.
@nickytickytavy snapped this moody, artistic pic in Riverside Park.
We love #ypsireal in the winter months. This shot from @juniperjademade features one of the many #dogsofypsi, near beautiful Ford Lake.
