For the second year running, Rick and I created a Family Calendar using photos we’d taken in the previous year, and some taken by other family members. We distributed 9 copies to the various family households.

To an extent, these photos have represented our current level of expertise in taking photos and enhancing them with computer software such as Photoshop, Affinity Photo and Lightroom.

We had the Calendars printed in 11″ x 8.5″ format by Costco, the wholesale superstore where most of the family’s shopping gets done. They did a superb job of publishing it in calendar format.

These are the photos for the cover and the twelve months:
