MM 3-46: Monochrome Madness

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.

Early morning at the Seafarers Bridge. The sun was starting to come up and the image didn’t really have much colour, so I thought taking it all out could be good.


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. Really love Judi Castille’s “Reflections.”

  2. Oh rats! Had a bad week and totally lost track of time. I’m determined to start submitting photos. Black and white is something I’m not that good at and I want to learn.

    • That happens Deborah, I almost forget some weeks. I used to feel the same way and think this challenge has helped with that. I look forward to your next image Deborah.

  3. wow.. great shot Leanne! Lovely composition with the two eye lights 🙂

    And lovely shot by Judi too, though not entirely monochrome, it looks fantastic!
    And always good to see the Sydney opera house 😀

  4. Amazing! So many aspects of composition, light and shadow, focus – making some overlooked subjects interesting. Girl, you got skills!

  5. Lovely! Is there any way I can get a print of the photo called “Reflections” by Judi Castile?

Please, say hello, would love to hear from you.
