MM 4-22: Theme Doors

The lack of numbers for this one seems to show how it has snuck up on us all. Either that or people didn’t like the theme, I like to think it is the first one. It is a small number, but no less beautiful.

The next theme, maybe something more abstract this time, what do you think? How about, IN THE OPEN? As always, your interpretation.

This is my image. It is the door to the Cascade Brewery. We went through this door when we did the brewery tour in Tasmania. It is quite an amazing building and the tour was fantastic. You get free beer at the end of it, and not little samples, proper glasses of it.  We were given four tokens, though we just had one each and cashed in the final three for a can of their Mercury Cider, it was really good. I thought it might be fun to do a photo from there. This is an infrared image, though it is hard to tell, which is nice.


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.

    I’m hate that I missed this theme; but I wasn’t feeling well. I love the idea of doors and will be looking for the perfect one anyway. I’ll be thinking on “in the open” and do my best not to procrastinate so much. Great group of photos this time around.

  2. Great collection of shots by everyone! What a variety of looks too. I had a post drafted and then was traveling and never scheduled it. Oops.

  3. It’s an open and shut case (mostly shut) . . . a fine collection of doors.

  4. Hi Leanne. Doors are harder than they seem for many unless you shoot them often. Also, I saw at least one MM post that didn’t make it here so I think it got away from some as you say.

    In the open is a pretty broad theme with many ways to shoot that. I like that, now to figure it out as it is right at the start of the month and right before I am traveling.

    • What do you mean Robert, did I miss someone? I do that from time to time, I try very hard not to.

      I thought it might be interesting to have something like that, it can be wonderful to see what people send. I have to work it out as well.

    • Dispersed Tracks did a post comparing door pictures for theme week but maybe he forgot to send it in?

    • I had a look to see if I had the email and I couldn’t find one from him. So not sure what happened.

    • Well, Disperser composed the e-mail, attached the file, and then waited for the thing to magically send itself.

      Would you believe it stubburnly refused to do so?

      I think it wanted me to hit “send,” like I have time for that stuff!

    • So much for ‘smart’ electronics. It’s not like we don’t have way more important things to do than hit send. Such is life in the digital age.

  5. I love this theme and wish I had seen it. Love the Doors.

    • I’m putting a door on for next time. I’ll figure a way around ‘in the open part’, as I think what I have in mind is closed.

    • Yeah, my trip to Tasmania got in the way of this one a bit.

      Why not see if you can make it work, I’m looking forward to seeing what you do. You have a month to work it out.

Talk to me, it is too quiet.
