2019 Twin Cities Calendar
So I decided what the theme of my calendar this year is going to be, in conjuction with the Holiday Sale: Classic Twin Cities photos. For several years now I've been making a calendar around the holiday season; my dad started this by asking for something that he could send out to people who he keeps touch with around this time every year; he usually buys a bunch of them to give to people who want to know what I'm up to, and then I include some in packages for my Patreon patrons and sell off the rest.
The 2016 and 2017 calendars were collections of current work; for 2018 my mom asked for animal photos specifically, so that ended up being a themed calendar, and this year I decided to stick with a theme. Most of my work this year has been either non-calendar-appropriate subjects, or in vertical format. I thought about doing two vertical photos per page, or just doing one entirely in Jellyfish, but in the end I settled on going back to the archive a little bit for some of my best photos from my local region, Minneapolis and St. Paul.
The cover is one of the first photos that made me think I could do this seriously, and also from my first day ever shooting with an ultrawide lens, something that has become a signature in the years since. This is Mill Ruins Park in downtown Minneapolis, in 2008. You'll see the Stone Arch Bridge a couple more times in the calendar shots:
I managed to keep most of these photos in their respective months, especially those of Lock and Dam No. 1, which sees a lot of seasonal variation.
Calendars can be added for $9 to any Holiday Sale order I'm shipping.
