The Farmers Market

Natural lighting? Check. Colorful surroundings? Check. Old people haggling over the price of squash? Double check. The weekly farmers market is the perfect opportunity to take some quality snaps while enjoying a quintessential Bloomington event.


The Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Whether you’re catching a show or just walking by, this historic theater is the perfect place to stop and get a picture. So Bloomington.




The Colorful Wall Along the B-Line

Yes, that wall! You’ve no doubt seen it featured on your Instagram timeline about a thousand times by now. No matter what you’re wearing, at least one of the colors will serve as a great background.


An Alleyway

Graffiti always makes for a fun photo or background, so try finding some of the colorful artwork that’s hiding in Bloomington’s alleyways.
