About 30 minutes ago I have started to work on the 7th and last calendar, but for some reason I came up with this unplanned result
I have to figure out if I want to put it in the group of the calendars I want to sell or create another sea calendar for the people.
Not that I want a personalized unique calendar for me but I reckon that the union of such a B&W image and the colors of the days (even just the white and reds without any other specific event highlighted) can be really disturbing, unless both the picture and the colored days means something for you…I don’t know.
I think that it’s something that only a crazy mind like mine, that links to that picture a lot of little but relevant moments of her life, can like such a calendar.
And now a calendar for the “pulzella” (Merins’ daughter):
It is focused on “panorama” because a fe days ago, while we were having a conversation via sms she told me she loves panorama shots.
The cat is an extra picture she has chosen from my website.
This one is for my friend Merins…. this time the calendar was more focused on what she loves doing (singing) and her singer friends and group of singer (Ethno Voice).
Some of the pictures (the 3 group pictures + the picture under March: the man with the guitar) are not mine, the others are picture I took on Jan 8th 2011.
And finally the calendar for my bedroom:
Under (or above) each month there is a picture taken on that month of any of the past years.
In the central line I had put soap bubbles shots for decoration and because I do love those shots
Let’s see who can say which is the “planned” pictures composition and the reason of this pictures-matching
I will have this calendars printed tomorrow afternoon.
Something tells me that the work is not over, but what is left are probably calendars that I have to send via mail due to distance issues…:)
On 19th December officially started “my” Christmas vacation.
This means that on 19th December afternoon I have started doing what I had been desiring to do for at least 4 weeks:
just stay with my pictures and imagination!
since it’s the end of the year I opted to go ahead with the calendars project.
On Monday I created a soap-bubble theme calendar for my mother.
This one will hang on a wall in our apartment corridor for the next 12 months.
On Tuesday I created a nature-events theme calendar for the webmaster:
For the first time he will hang his calendar in a room in north Italy. Big changes in our life are going to happen in a couple of week, I want to give him something that would make him feel at home even for just a second per day.
On late Tuesday a good man I met on the web asked me a calendar for his granddaughter. He asked me a calendar full of cats
Here it is. Except for the cat on the left bottom corner, that is the grandpa’s cat picture taken with a cellphone the rest all all cats picture I have taken from late Summer 2006 to October 2011.
I tried to use lighter colors since it will go as a present for a 7 year old girl. I hope she’ll enjoy it.
This was actually the most difficult calendar since I have no idea of what a little girl might like (but this is another story…)
Now the last big dilemma is left: WHAT ABOUT MINE CALENDAR?
I know that these calendar are not exactly the most useful thing in the world, but people receiving one of these as present seem to enjoy his/her calendar for the whole year.
Plus: I really love making them because it’s another way to enjoy the process that start with a just-white page and ends with a colorful page.
