Calendar pictures

Filed under: Personal,Photography — cec @ 12:27 pm

To forestall my mother’s nagging polite and subtle reminders, I took some time yesterday to select pictures for a 2008 Yellowstone calendar. I tried to limit myself to pictures taken on this year’s trip and was happy to see that I could 🙂

The ones I finally selected are shown below. They start with the cover image and then go from January through December:

Cover January February March April May June July August September October November December

To print them, I’m going with Lulu instead of Kodak. There are a couple of reasons for that. One is price 🙂 The other is that Lulu will do a full 8.5″x11″ edge to edge print whereas Kodak always puts a border. The images above are all scaled/cropped to a 8.5×11 aspect ratio, so hopefully, I’ll end up with a pretty nice result.

update: if anyone’s interested, the calendar is available from Lulu with no markup


  1. To the Naggee,

    I love it when my nag wins over the natural lethargy of my well-meaning, but procrastination-prone offspring. To mothers everywhere, these pictures stand as an impressive testament to the power of a positive push in the posterial direction.

    As the nagger, I would also love to be able to take credit for the creative prowess exhibited here, but alas, my dubious powers seem limited to pushing people to avoid pain and cannot yet propel them to produce pleasure. The ultimate credit goes to photographer.

    Great work–my finest, and yours. Can’t wait to see the finished product.
