Desk Calendar 2 photo 1

Paris, France
I forget exactly where this photo was taken in Paris, but I love the contrast of the new and old.

Desk Calendar 2 cover

A little over a year ago I was asked at work to be in charge of making birthday cards using my photos and the photos in this calendar are from the collection of photos that I have put together for those cards.

Desk Calendar 1 Cover

I really liked how this grouping worked together. In this calendar I alternated color and black and white photos. All black and white photos were taken using black and white film and the color ones are a mix of film and digital formats.

This picture was taken in Saaremaa, Estonia in the summer of 2007 in the garden of my co-workers family. Saaremaa (directly translate Saare "Island" maa "land") is the largest of Estonia's islands. The light filtering through the red currants really captures the long summer days and the joy of picking fresh berries in the garden.

It took my godmother and I quite awhile to find this cafe in New York. It had been recommended it a magazine but is obscurely located below street level--- the search was worth it though, the espresso was fabulous, now if only I remembered the name of the place!

This photo was taken while my friend Heikki and I were touring arond the little island of Kihnu, Estonia on bicycles when we went there for Jaanipäev or St. John's Day (Midsummer). Its amazing how tall and narrow the trees in the forest are.

2011 Calendars

I created four calendars for 2011 with photos that I have taken over the last couples years. Two desk calendars and two wall calendars. I thought I would post some information on the images I used each month on the blog-- I was selling the calendars for $24 a piece (with $1 from each calendar going to the Lupus Foundation of America) if anyone still wants one, let me know! Enjoy---
