I finished the calendar yesterday and am attaching the cover image and a contact sheet with the other 12 photos in the new calendar. I placed the initial order and will begin shipping them early next week.
Once again, One, is featured on the cover as she is peering around a tree trunk ready to strike out at prey (any creature that does not submit to her will) and vultures circle waiting for remnants from the kill. I think you will find the monthly selections a pleasant change from month to month and all photographs were taken in 2017, mostly in the month I took the shot. The calendar is wire bound and 11″ x 17″ when hanging on the wall and the image is full size 8.5″ x 11″ and printed on 100 lb glossy card stock … the price is $25.00 for one calendar, discounts for two or more delivered to your home or business.
I am only going to be selling them from my websites as it is much less complicated for me and payment is via PayPal on the websites … you can use credit cards if you do not have a PayPal account and those options are there once you click on the PayPal button on the website. Using PayPal makes my accounting simple; I buy the calendars using PayPal, I ship off the PayPal website as well as receive payments there. If you simply cannot figure out the online buying, I will take a check :+)
A fabulous weekend and into the new week and methinks it shall be a very good one. My namesake is Theodore Roosevelt and my folks named me Theodore Grussing (no middle name); a friend just sent me a quote from TR and I thought it very apropos to present day life in the USA so will share it with you too. Tomorrow night the story about why I use Max Ehrmann quotes in virtually all my emails, sometimes a deviation, but mostly I hang with Ehrmann.
Have a beautiful day, smile and share the joy you find in life and persevere in all that you undertake … heed the words of Teddy Roosevelt. Thanks Van!
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
— Theodore Roosevelt

In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
