Wanted: Photos For MSR’s 2013 Calendar


Photo by blarfiejandro

Market Street Railway is a favorite of ours — they help Muni restore and preserve its fleet of historic streetcars, they run a streetcar museum near the Ferry Building, and they publish a calendar each year with great images of those streetcars, among other things.

Recently elected MSR board member Jeremy asked us to pass this along: They’re looking for photos from the Muni-riding and -loving community for their 2013 calendar. Jeremy says:

2013 marks the beginning of Muni’s second century. The Market Street Railway’s annual Museum in Motion calendar is a very important part of our yearly activities. We would like to emphasize both its past and its future with fresh photographs of the vintage streetcars and cable cars in action. We’d like your help putting together our 2013 calendar.

Some specs to keep in mind if you’d like to contribute:

  • Photos should be landscape (horizontally) oriented, in color, and at least 3,000 x 2,000 pixels.
  • The calendar is in a “widescreen” format, so a traditional 35mm framing of a tight shot of a streetcar would be problematic.
  • The format requires cropping top and/or bottom from a standard 4×3 format.
  • Many people don’t post high-resolution versions to Flickr, but any photos submitted for publication should be available as camera original JPEG or RAW files without watermarks.
