SL Home & Garden Calendar – May 2018

In January 2016 I started a fun Flickr group called Sl Calendar Girls. The idea behind it was that people would add their beautiful photos of women to the group over the course fo a month and at the end of each month I would choose my favourites and post them here on the blog. I had no idea it would take off to the level it did. Two and a half years later there are almost 8000 photos a month added to the SL Calendar Girls pool and it’s still growing every month.  It’s something I do that I’m very proud of as it continues to shine a light on both established and newer photographers. There are no rules for SL Calendar Girls and no criteria other than the photo just be of a female avatar. Furthermore, I am not claiming to have an expert eye…they are my favourites. The photos that ‘pop’ for me when I am looking through the group may be because of the scene, the humour, the feeling and emotion, the colour palette…it can be anything. They are literally my favourites and that is all.

How much people enjoyed the list, either because they were in it, or because it gave them a list of photographers and bloggers to follow has continually surprised and surpassed my expectations. So a few weeks ago I asked the decor and landscape photographers on my Facebook friends list if they would be interested in me doing an SL Home and Garden version of SL Calendar Girls. Here is the first month’s selection. At the end of the year I will choose one photo from each month to form a Home and Garden ‘Calendar’ of sorts. Please feel free to add your photos to the group but please read the rules first – no avies should appear in the photograph. A few links below and then on with the debut selection of Sl Home & Garden Calendar:

  1. i just wanted to thank you so much for doing this…..i’ve always felt like home and garden designers/photographers haven’t been recognized as much as they deserve…the amount of work we put into our pics (set ups) is tremendous…. kudos to each and every person that made it..❤️

    1. You’re very welcome. I’ve enjoyed seeing everyone’s photos so much and it’s given me lots of inspiration for my own work too. We may be a smaller group than fashion bloggers but we are mighty! hehe ❤
