Way back in 1996 I made a calendar. It was a little black and white desk-topper with photos taken in Cambridge England, where we were living at the time. I had 255 of them printed for 5 pounds a piece, and sold them at the craft market for 20. It was great. Everybody loved it. I never made another. I’m not exactly sure why, but the fact of the matter is, I didn’t.
Fast forward to the summer of 2014 and while visiting my cousin in Calgary he brings up the calendar and how he still had it in a box of keepsakes. It meant that much to him. It made me proud, and sad at the same time. Why had I neglected to continue making these little keepsakes of my years best images. I vowed to myself that this year I would undertake to make another. This time around though I only had 5 printed. A few for friends and family and one for my cousin. These were the photos I chose, all taken in the past year. All, as the title suggest, were taken at the water’s edge.

These are fantastic. I would buy a calendar of these, no question!
So natural and peaceful. I could find myself sitting at most of these by the water – just sitting and listening. No one around but me.
These are stunning Derrick!! I wish I would have known about this project – I would love to have a calendar of Derrick Hanni originals on my wall. You absolutely need to be selling these on Etsy or Facebook or something. They would fly out the door. I bet you could sell them for stock too… Amazing work!!
Wonderful Derrick! I look forward to more 🙂
nice job D! like the pics a lot!
Beautiful pictures. I also love the passage, as I too remember the 1996 calendar. My mom had it displayed long after the calendar year was finished.
I was one of the lucky recipients. It looks awesome in my office!
