Each year I set aside some of my favorite photos to make a desk calendar. It’s sometimes hard to decide because some hold a special memory… and only I can know what that is. It may not translate to the viewer beyond me.
This calendar also gets into the hands of some of the sales people I work with and they in turn pass them on to their customers. Therefore, sometimes decisions are also swayed by what others may like…or what could be offensive to some, though I rarely shoot that type of image.
This year I have decided to go with what I like…and if they don’t… well that’s a choice, isn’t it?
The cover will be a very simple solid black page with a wonderful quote from the magnificent T.S. Elliot…How can I go wrong…
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
Anyway, after many after-thoughts and lip biting, second guesses…and then arriving back where I started…this is my calendar for 2008
I can’t even remember my correct order of months…but I will try 😉
