2014

We’re almost to the end of this journey. Thanks for taking it with me. It has allowed me to become reacquainted with some old favorites. Hopefully you’ve become reacquainted with some old favorites or been introduced to some new favorites.

It has been educational for me to see where I’ve been. It has definitely helped me shape where I’m going. A new vision and a reinvigoration.

Enough of that… Let’s look at 2014…

Only one more look back at the past to go.

2013 Christmas Calendar

This is a look back at the photos from the calendar I gave as Christmas gifts in 2012. You’ll see many of the same images from the flower calendar. I have no doubts.

I’ve never done what one would call market research, but I did make a change to the 2015 calendar and then made a change back in the 2016 calendar. That is this. The 2015 calendar has big numbers for the dates. I found this to be aesthetically pleasing. However, some feedback I got was that this made it more difficult to write on the calendar. Therefore, I changed back to small numbers for the 2016 calendar.

I’ve also been asked why I don’t include birthdays or “different holidays” any longer. The reason for that is because of the diverse audience that the Photography 139 Calendar now reaches, I don’t know how many of those people need to know the date my nephew Brandon’s birthday (December 4). However, I could probably add International Talk Like A Pirate Day back to the calendar.

I’ve already stated that I’m going to go back to diversifying the subject matter of the 2017 calendar. I have this glorious plan of taking each photo for the 2017 calendar during the corresponding month of 2016. This means that my plan of going back to my plan of lining up certain subjects with certain months will probably go to the wayside. Sorry anybody that was getting jacked up for a frog in February of 2017. I’ll try to get a frog somewhere else… like April.

Any way, please leave any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas in the comments section. I might not act on them, but you don’t know until you try.

2013 Flower Calendar

2013 was the only year I made 2 calendars. 1 for sale by the SHAMELESS PHOTOGRAPHY 139 COMMERCE DIVISION and 1 for Christmas gifts by the SHAMELESS PHOTOGRAPHY 139 GIFT DIVISION.

I thought that this would be a tradition I would continue. I was wrong. I continue to be wrong.

Here is a look at the 2013 Flower Calendar:

I should point out that there was a submission for FRAMED that I forgot to post yesterday, so follow this link so that you can check out all the submissions:



WEEK 15 – FRAMED


WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 15 – FRAMED

I expected Christmas to take a toll on this week’s submissions… and it did.

But 2 submissions isn’t too bad for a more difficult theme and it was Christmas!

This week’s submissions for FRAMED:


WEEK 15 - FRAMED - MICHELLE HAUPT
Michelle Haupt

WEEK 15 - FRAMED - CHRISTOPHER D. BENNETT
Christopher D. Bennett

WEEK 15 - FRAMED - ANGIE DEWAARD
Angie DeWaard

WEEK 15 - FRAMED - SHANNON BARDOLE
Shannon Bardole

Time to look forward to this week’s theme…


WEEK 16 - RED
RED!

That should be a simple enough theme. Especially as the holidays continue. Including one of the biggest holidays of the year. The beginning of the Big 12 Basketball Conference Schedule!

2012

Looking at these images I think I might go back to my old school way of lining up images with their months in 2017. If I walk away from the all flower calendar. I guess we’ll see how that plays out.

I realize that the March picture means it has been 4 years since I’ve been to New York City. That seems way too long. May have to remedy that next year.

2011

As I look over this collection I am reminded that it has been too long since I’ve done some full moon photography, like the photo represented by April.

Who wants to keep me company and go do some full moon photography next full moon?

One of my all-time favorite images is in this collection. Can you guess which one?

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas - 2015

“Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights, please. ‘And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid and the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.’ That’s what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown.”

Merry Christmas everybody!

2010

The 2010 calendar was the last calendar that included a human subject. As I open up the subject matter past flowers for the 2017 calendar, it is possible a human subject might find their way back into the calendar. Until then Jill and Sara are the last humans to grace the calendar’s pages.

This was also the last calendar to feature an image that was heavily Photoshopped.
