2010 Calendar – Part 1

My apologies for the posting rate having slowed down so much around here lately. I’ve been busy working on two other projects, and I’m afraid I’ve never been all that good at multi-tasking.

Kind of an interesting story about that, actually. When I was in the 1st and 2nd grade I attended an experimental elementary school in Houston, Texas. I don’t know exactly what the experiment was called or what they were trying to determine, but in a nutshell they had this one massive building, almost like a big warehouse. Inside it was just one massive wide-open space, and each classroom was essentially just a collection of desks and a blackboard. There were open walkways dividing everything up, but no walls at all.

Obviously with people going back and forth all the time, and other classes going on all around you, there were distractions no matter which way you looked. It forced me as a kid, to develop the ability to concentrate completely on one task, to the exclusion of everything else. I was only in that environment for 2 years, but happening at such a formative age I think it had a significant impact on how I developed mentally – or as my wife would probably tell you, how I failed to develop mentally.

The upshot being that I can apply an almost laser-like focus to whatever I’m working on, and generally get a lot done – but as I said, I’m pretty lousy when it comes to juggling multiple projects.

Anyway, November is here, December is drawing nigh – and with it the end of 2009, so I spent most of this weekend working on photos for the upcoming 2010 Calendar. I’m really excited about the way this one is coming together, and I think people are really going to like it.

I’ve posted preliminary photos of the shots I’m planning to use for each month, so you can check them out if you’re interested. Just click the image to see the full version. There will be some minor changes here and there before the calendar goes up for sale, but what you see below should give you a general idea of what it will look like.

    Ken,
    On March’s photo of Williams River, is it located on top of Cheat Mountain? I can’t place it.

    I was way out in the Monongahela trout fishing when I took that one, Laura. Somewhere between Marlinton and Cowen, I guess. We were a few miles downstream from the Tea Creek Campground, if you know where that’s at.

    I didn’t realize the National Forest ran down through the county that far. I need to study up on my geographical maps some. Thanks for letting me know!

    Wow, Ken! These pictures are awesome! The “November” picture is absolutely breathtaking (as they all are!) I definitely want to order a few when you get the ‘final’ product.
