For each month in 2006 I’ve been producing a calendar. The vast majority of these calendars have been based on readers’ photos of their own vehicles. I did this to inspire some creativity and some pride of ownership amongst the community. I love good photography and it’s been great to see people embrace the Saab O The Week concept and get some enjoyment out of their vehicles this way. I’m really proud of the collection of calendars that were put together this year.
1) Calendars have a limited use in terms of time.
2) It can be time consuming to search for the best photos and produce the calendars. I get a lot of photos sent to me, but I also ask for some photos of cars that I know of. It’s small stuff, but cumulatively it adds up. The last two calendars have been prepared this way (i.e. requested photos).
Rather than producing a desktop calendar each month, I’ll endeavour to produce some regular desktop wallpapers. I’ll be applying the same high photographic standards to these as with the calendars.
The perceived advantages:
1) These wallpapers can be stored in a categorised section of the site so they’re easily accessible – a step I didn’t plan for with the calendars
2) There’s no time/redundancy problem – wallpapers produced now will still look as good in 2, 3, or more years from now.
So, it’s over to you…..vote away – and as always your comments and suggestions are welcome.
