They were a big hit, so when the calendar contest was announced I thought it would be fun to do it again and make a whole variety this time!” Alan Diaz, an amateur digital photographer from Connecticut, who entered his Alan’s Tractors calendar said, “I've been doing digital photography since the inception of digital cameras in the late 1990's. I discovered QOOP back when it was an option on Flickr, where I post my photos. I've done a calendar every year as gifts.”
