Great Images You Already Have

So far this morning I've seen several amazing photos on Facebook showing off the unbelievable rainbows after yesterday's showers. Why not show those off to the world via an amazing calendar? Your digital images can be easily uploaded to the site and shared by Visit Grand Junction.

Why Share Your Photos?

The website CYME shared an article entitled "The Culture of Sharing Images." The article opens with the statement, "The very first desire to share an image is undoubtedly that of transmitting the feelings it arouses while looking at it." That certainly makes sense. Why, though, should we share images? The article continues:

This cabinet of visual curiosities summons emotions and lists the territories that animate us: beauty, tenderness, poetry, the wow effect, memories, aspirations, the surges of the world or the bright side of life…. All this constitutes the foundation of this intimate catalogue, perhaps even an identity–a kind of modest and intellectual selfie, that of our inner being.

I happen to agree with the statements above. My grandfather, Robert Grant, published a Grand Junction calendar for decades. They've become popular keepsakes. I know for a fact he enjoyed sharing the photos every bit as much as people enjoyed seeing them. Check out the gallery below, and you'll see it for yourself.

Let's Make It Simple

Grand Junction and its surrounding areas are magnificent, to say the least. Photo ops are endless. When you capture a breathtaking image, why not share it? Should you choose to share your images, what better place to share than a calendar to be distributed throughout the valley.

Don't delay. The deadline to submit your photos is August 5, 2022.
