MM 3-38: Monochrome Madness

Looks like everyone liked the new gallery last week and the ability to comment on individual photos, which many did. It was good to see.

Don’t forget the next theme is reflections, for just the first MM in February.

Another photo of one of the pelicans from Healesville Sanctuary. I really love them and they are always one of the highlights for me when I go there.


Don’t forget all the instructions on how to enter your own images are at the bottom of the post.  If you have entered an image then please remember to check your image in the gallery, scroll down and see if anyone has left you any comments.

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 remember to 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. Your pelican is stunning. Lots of good ones here this week. I can’t comment individually from my phone. I’ll need to get on my computer.

  2. Hi, Leanne. I love your shot of the pelican–and his expression. The eyes say it all.

  3. Wonderful images … but I agree, the pelican is the star!

  4. I love your photo of the pelican! There is expression in its eyes – glancing and the movement of the water – fabulous!

  5. Those are the best pictures of pelicans I’ve ever seen. They almost look pretty, which is hard, for a pelican.

  6. I love the cold tones in your pelican shot.
