“In the vaunted works of Art, The master-stroke is Nature’s part.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

The quote and photo above are among the first ones I used in designing a calendar for the Westford Conservation Trust. The photo is one I made with a ‘point and shoot’ digital camera — a Canon G1 — that is rated at 3.2 mega pixels. I love the photo – it was the cover on the 2006 calendar —  and it prints beautifully up to at least 11 X 14 — shows what a little God sent light can do! The quote is a favorite as well.

Tonight I’m giving a little presentation to the photography club I belong to on the calendar that I’ve designed and produced for the Trust for 2006 and 2007. It should be fun and a chance to discuss some of the adventures I’ve had doing this.

The calendar project, as we came to call it, enabled me to bring my interest in Nature, walking, Emerson and Thoreau, poetry and photography together.

Our calendar includes poetry for each month and information about the Trust and our conservation land and open space. Its been well received selling out 2 printings each year.

I’ll let you know how the presentation goes tomorrow.
