I've been producing a wall calendar for a few years now, for reasons I've outlined in a previous post. In the last few years, and certainly since I started selling my calendars commercially, they have been black-and-white affairs. This was partly because I like the style of monochrome, partly because I like the artistic challenge of making good monochrome images and partly because black-and-white tends to suit Melbourne.
This year, for the 2018 calendar I've gone colour. Why? Mostly for the challenge. Again it comes down to finding a specific reason to take pictures – something that can be useful for anyone whether they are doing it for professional reasons or not.
I also did it because I know Melbourne has some great colour and I felt it was time to give a nod to that aspect of this wonderfully picturesque city.
