Good afternoon everyone!

We had a chat about original calendar idea again recently and think we've come up with a nice alternative idea for a photography project for gransnetters.

We loved the idea of 'what advice would you give your teenage self' that came up in a thread a while back, and thought we could look into creating a series of portraits on that subject. To illustrate the advice we would create current (fully clothed!) portraits of gransnetters alongside their younger self. We are looking into exactly how we might do it in terms of style and logistics. But, of course, this would only work if you all liked the idea and agreed that it would showcase the wonderful wisdom and experience of gransnetters in the right light.

Would love to know your thoughts x

I'll be the first to throw my hat into the ring and say I think it's a really good idea and reflective of the ages and stages we've been through and the experience we've garnered along the way. smile

I said the same as GA on the original thread Gigi but will reiterate here - brilliant idea!

Great idea, I'd be up for it. Better get a wiggle on - only 223 days until the C day wink

That's great to hear, we'll start looking into the logistics on how we can achieve it and let you know. We've not forgotten, honestly. x
