I'm going on the assumption that you are looking for photos that are "landscape" (wider than they are tall) rather than "portrait" (taller than they are wide).

A couple times in my checkered past, I served as Project Coordinator for a fund raising calendar of hot, tattooed men holding kittens - "Cats and Tats." Good luck in narrowing down the ones you opt to use. So far the ones that have been submitted are all gorgeous!

we can edit the pages to accommodate either photo orientation, and some pages may have more than one photo. So portrait or landscape is fine :smile:

Final Bump!
