With all of the dramatic changes taking place in Austin these days, from the ever-shifting skyline to the hundreds of newcomers who move here each day, photographs are a helpful way to freeze a moment in time for posterity.

Austin Business Journal staff photographer Arnold Wells captures a wide variety of scenes each year, from highlighting what executives do in their free time — be it acroyoga or mountain biking — to documenting big events like Austin City Limits Music Festival and South by Southwest.

The gallery attached to this story has the 33 images picked out by Wells as his favorites of 2017. Some were for specific stories, others he simply captured as he trained his lens on different parts of the region.
