Category: Monochrome Madness

A new year has begun. How amazing. Thank you everyone for your messages of congratulations, and it it was wonderful to hear how many of you enjoy it each week. Someone did comment about how people don’t really comment on the images anymore. I don’t know why that is. Could be my fault, I don’t know.

We made it, here we are at our third anniversary. It is an amazing feat, and I’ve met some amazing people through the process. MM certainly isn’t what it was in the beginning, and while it didn’t grow like I thought it would, it is good that it didn’t stop. There have been many people that did it once and no longer do, and I do miss them. Still, there have been new contributors along the way as well. Will we see a fourth anniversary, I’m not so sure, but time will tell.

Next weeks MM will be 4-1

Congratulations everyone.

Late again, sorry, I had all the best intentions of doing it last night to schedule, but our power went a bit weird.  Some things were working, some were not. Very strange. Still, all good now.

I can’t believe next week is our third anniversary for Monochrome Madness. We didn’t decide on anything special.

It is so crazy here, so many things happening, I wasn’t sure I would get this post done today. Here we are and it seems I’m going to get it done.

Next week is the theme, Culture. I think many are struggling with it, so I ‘m going to give you some ideas. Melbourne is known for its coffee culture, so photographs of coffee, people having coffee. Melbourne has lots of trams that make it a bit more unique. Melbourne is also known for its lane ways and graffiti. Think about what makes where you are more unique.

It seems to be a long month, well long for the themes, as the next one is still two weeks away. I gather this theme isn’t very popular as I haven’t been getting many submissions for it. I do have trouble from time to time working out what we should do for the themes. Always happy to get help with them.

It doesn’t seem to matter how much I tell myself at the beginning of the week that I will get onto this early, other things always seem to get in the way.  It has been a quiet week for everyone, so it seems, so not a lot to look at, but still great images.

Our next theme is culture, and that can be yours, other peoples, anything really. For example in Melbourne there is a massive coffee culture, so I would probably do something with that.

Next week is the next theme week for Monochrome Madness so get your images in. Remember it is Shadow or shadows.

I don’t have a photo this week. Something happened yesterday and I’m feeling a little flat, so I just couldn’t bring myself to doing a photo. I’m starting to question my whole place in the photography world and wondering if I should have choosen something else. More about it on Friday. We did get lots of other wonderful images, so let’s go straight to them.

Less than 10 weeks to our third year anniversary, amazing that we are still going. Should we do something special?

Please remember to include all information when you send your images, which means a link, if you have one. I don’t always know what they are, and it takes me a lot longer to do the post if I have to go looking for them.

Don’t forget the next theme is the first Thursday in March and it is Shadow/s, your interpretation.

The week after a theme is always interesting, what will people send, what will I do myself. It’s nice to have the freedom to do what I like at these times. The post is a bit late, sorry, I was out last night taking photos and didn’t get a chance to get it done.

Don’t forget the next theme is the first Thursday in March and it is Shadow/s, your interpretation.
