MM 3-10: Monochrome Madness

MM 3-10: Monochrome Madness

Another week and here we are again with Monochrome Madness.

The theme will be the week after next. The theme will be HIgh. I will have to find something too.


My image is another one from Tasmania. It was from the day I was in Queenstown. We went looking around at what the mining industry had done to the communities and the surrounding areas. This is pretty much all that is left in the town of Linda. A burned out shell of the Royal Hotel.

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
  • 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 love your image of the Royal Hotel. I find it amazing to be in that condition, yet still standing, and you’ve made it appear almost haunted.

    • You’re welcome, I like to share it around.
      Thank you, they have put up poles to keep it there, though you have to wonder how long they will work and it will just start falling.

    • Hey Bren, I know we have already worked out that I missed it, sorry, but great that you have added your link here.

    • No worries Leanne… I’m just pleased that I’m not the only one who loses things on their computer 😃😃I start my computer filing system off with very good intentions. .but six months down the line, I start losing things, because I start filing them incorrectly or have to many folders 😃😃

    • Oh no, I seem to be doing it more and more as I get older. It’s shocking. lol
