MM 4-12: Monochrome Madness

It is with us again, another week for Monochrome Madness.

The theme for the first week of August will be SEASON. As always your interpretation.

Another one of my images that I took while along the Great Ocean Road a couple of weeks ago. Some scenes are just perfect to do in monochrome. These are two of the 12 apostles, the first two. I did a long exposure of it and when I was looking for something to do for today this image seemed perfect.


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. Hi, Leanne — Thanks for placing my photo as your banner!

  2. Thanks for clearing things up for me. I’m a dumb American 🙂 , so when I see 4-12 it makes me think of month-date but now I know it means something completely different. I also re-re-read the submission instructions and know that I can submit photos each week if I want to. Thanks!

  3. What is the deadline for posting photos for the MM with the Season theme?

  4. I’m a little confused. The email I got mentions MM 4-12 for the first week of August, with the theme of Season. Are the images in the email for an earlier MM with a different theme? If so, what was the theme for these photos?

    • No, this is MM 4-12, it is for this week, the numbers are 4th year, 12th week, next week will be MM 4-13. I don’t know what the first one in August will be. We only do the theme once a month, but MM is every week, so the only time we have the theme is the first week of each month. For MM 4-12 there is no theme, people just send in monochrome photos.

  5. A pretty good collection.

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