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.

In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and maybe, you want to vis­it my web­site or my flickr page too.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.

    What a nice idea. I might steal it.

    • 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.
