The Calendar Files … 2010 … London

Some time ago a discussion was going on, what to do with your favorite images you made over the year and how to appreciate them. All agreed, that the final appreciation can be given by printing your images – something most photographers in the age of posting online trillions of images a day never did or will ever do.

My way to appreciate my images of the year is to print a calendar for the coming year. This way I have to choose 12 (13) out of hundreds of images and they should represent the best I did.

In this mini series I’d like to show my calendar files of the past years with all 12 (13 incl. cover page) images.

One issue I have is, that even if the calendar sheet is DIN A2, the maximum image area is not 2:3 or 4:3, but sometimes more 16:9. So when choosing the images, you not only have to see if you’ll end up with a portrait or landscape orientation calendar, but also if an image can be cropped to the differing ratio. Sometimes you will lose a small part of the original image – unfortunately. But that’s the price of getting 13 ‘large’ format prints of your own images.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.

    1. Hi Jim,
      feel free :)

      To me and my beloved wife, this is a year long reminder on some wonderful time we spent in some interesting places the year before.

      As prices dropped over the last years, this is no longer an expensive way printing your images. When starting in 2010, I paid nearly 70 EUR for a DIN A2 calendar. The one for the coming year was available for 19 EUR now.
