MM 3-29: Travel Theme


It is the beginning of the month again and here we go with our monochrome madness theme. It has been great seeing all the different interpretations.

Time to work out what the next theme will be, for the first week of December, I think Square.


My photo for the travel theme. It was taken while I was traveling last year in the US. I liked the old truck, that also could mean travel. A travel photo of travel, perhaps. This was in the ghost town  of Bodie in California.

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. Thanks for the inspiring challenge this week, Leanne! It’s great to “meet” some new bloggers here and start to follow their work. My entry is coming! Sepia works great with your shot of the ghost town.

    1. You’re welcome Patti. That is great to hear. I am looking forward to seeing your image. I love sepia, it can be great with some images.

  2. Some really amazing work. But I really want to know how that bicycle got on that wire between the buildings. I’m sure there’s a story there.

  3. What a wonderful collection of the theme “Travel”! I just love the varied interpretations – a bit outside the box in thinking here – which I love. Your shot is wonderful and has such a fabulous retro look and feel! Great shots everyone!

  4. Great entries this week and I discovered some new blogs. My post is up now too!
    Brilliant car photo Leanne. I wonder if the car works?

  5. marvelous gallery again, so many interesting interpretations. For me # 1 – the Kelpie (of course) though I wouldn’t want to be on his back and number 11 stood out.

  6. Many interesting photos this week, Leanne, including yours! My grandmother lived in Bodie for a year in 1879 when she was 8 years old. Then the family moved back to Virginia City. I haven’t the slightest idea where she specifically lived during that year. Maybe it was in one of the buildings in your photo!

    1. There are lots of old homes there. How amazing, what a great story, would be good if you could find out if the home is still there. It is quite an interesting place, have you been? Thanks.
