MM 3-25: Theme Pets


It has arrived again, the start of the month and it is time to see our photos for the theme Pets, or cats and dogs. Not a lot of entries, perhaps not a lot of people have pets.

The next theme is going to be Travel. Your interpretation. See if you can do something different, that is my challenge to you.

REMEMBER: If you would like to join us the instructions are at the bottom of the post.


I had another photo of Tiddles I wanted to use, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find it. So the old boy had to have a quick photo shoot this afternoon and this is what I got. It is so hard to get a good photo of him, I think he hates the camera. Part of the reason for doing this theme was so I could do a photo of him. This image was taken with the Lensbaby Velvet 56.

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
  • 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. Thank you Pieter, I did a post on him once, a few years back, but I really let him be, my daughter is always taking photos of him and posting them.

  1. Aren’t they all just lovely Leanne … SO many different expressions and off the cuff captures ! Seems like Cats are high there up in more ways than one . Tiddles was long overdue a modelling session for us … lol atleast you didn’t dress him up 😉 One gorgeous old boy .

    1. I know, so good to see so many. Oh yes, though I have to say he wasn’t impressed with it, and couldn’t wait for it to finish. Haha, no, no dressing up, he cops enough without doing that as well. Thank you Louise.

  2. Love the way the dog is the only thing in the photo besides snow in entry 18, Snow’s Fissures and Fractures. The faces on the children and the cat in entry 12, Crow Canyon Journal, are wonderful. There’s a great story in entry 5, aflyonzwall. The turned paw in entry 4, Maralee Park, makes that photo, and the eyes make it for entry 1, MAFE ROIG. Nice photos!

  3. Love all of these! I also have a lot of trouble photographing Mango. He is still a puppy and moves A LOT. I have to seeze the moments when he plays with a toy or sleeps to get nice shots of him! Thank you very much for including me in this theme 🙂

    1. That’s great, haha, I know what you mean, my cat is getting old, but you can see it on his face, OMG not the camera AGAIN. 😉

  4. Oh my, I have become so behind with following blogs, that I missed this! I would have had several photos to choose from to submit.


    1. I know the feeling Tamara, nine to hear from you. Sorry you missed it, but you could still send the photos for other MM’s.
