Shop Our First 2017 Calendar | A keepsake
For about three months at the end of 2016 I sat, culling though thousands of my photos in an attempt to choose 12 for a very special persons' Christmas Gift. A photo gift I was to make into a calendar. December came and I realised I had failed miserably. Because of the quantity of photos I made over the last three years, I found it impossible to and I could not choose a photo to work with, Not one.
December came and was almost gone. On Christmas Eve I decided to put away my archive drive, the thousands of photos, and choose 12 photos that were recently saved on my computer. I told myself, today is not to finish and I do not get this done. I typically work well under this kind of pressure, even when it self inflicted. That day I chose 12 photos and dropped them into a calendar I put together. I tested layouts, printing options and this is the result.
It now hangs in my living room, on the southern wall among the shelf of house plants I tend to.
