Each year at Christmas, I make a set of photo calendars for my family. I began doing this 15 years ago when I moved from New Jersey to Seattle, as a way of bragging about how beautiful my new adopted home was. I was also 3,000 miles away and also didn’t get to see my family often, so this was a way of letting them know where I’d been and what I’d been up to for the past 12 months. When I started, I brought 4×6 prints to Kinkos, where they would essentially photocopy the darn things onto calendar paper! Things are a little easier now. Here are the pictures from this year’s calendar; it’s the first time I’ve published them like this (I’m still working out the Kinks!). It’s hard to whittle it down to 13 images (including a cover)! I have a few extra, if anyone would like one, e-mail me privately.
Enjoy! And happy new year.
