MM 199: Theme Telephone

Seems this theme didn’t quite get the creative juices going. Not many entries for it, which is sort of disappointing. I have to admit I did have an idea of what I wanted to do, but then when I went to do it, well it didn’t really work out. Still, when I went through what I had I found something I had forgotten all about. The entries that have been sent have been interesting, photos of telephones, photos of people using them, and even photos taken them.

So the next theme, something easy, perhaps, From Under. See how you go with that, It could be interpreted so many ways. See how creative you could be.

The next theme will be the first Wednesday in April.

I’m not sure the monochrome version has done this justice. The colours around the black phones did make them stand out more. Then again, the writing is more prominent in this. It is an old image and was taken back in 2015. The three phones were in Hosier Lane. It was an intriguing piece of street art.

MM 199

Monochrome Madness each week and if you wish to participate and submit an image here is how you do it:-

  • You must email me the image you want to include and if you have a blog or website, or somewhere else, please include the link. My email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au
  • The image size should be low res, so the largest side should be 1000 pixels or less.
  • Please insert either your name or your blogs name in the file name.
  • Remember I am on Australian time, so with GMT I am +11 hours at the moment, I publish my post on Thursday morning.
  • If you need more help with sending images, and get confused about time zones, etc, well, there is a great website called The World Clock, if you go to that and look at Melbourne time, if it’s before 6pm on Tuesday evening, then you can still send me images.  If it’s after that time, you can send me an image, but it will be set aside for the following week.
  • Remember to include a link to your blog or website.
  • Please resize your images, it is fairly simply, you just need to go into any editing software and usually under Image you will find, resize, scale, or image size, something like that and you can resize your image there. Change the dimensions to pixels and make the longest side 1000 pixels or smaller, hit return, and for most types of software that should change the other side automatically as well. Just remember to save it with a different name so you know it is the smaller version.  If you have any problems, please contact me, I don’t mind helping out.

Please note you don’t have to be a WordPress blogger to be in this challenge, you can have a link to a Facebook page, a Flickr page, anywhere really, or no link.  We just want to encourage people to do monochrome images, just for the madness of it. Just to let you know also, that as soon as the challenge is published, all emails and images you have sent me are deleted from my computer.

  1. So interesting to see all these different phone pictures. And the one you’ve taken is really fun, a great find.

    All the photos are wonderful! I find it interesting to see the different perspectives. It’s rare to see a phone booth in America now; so the various phone booths were interesting to me.
