MM 3-30: Monochrome Madness


MM 3-30: Monochrome Madness

Life has been getting in the way this week a bit, but I guess if you neglect some things, then everything ends up catching up. The plumbing has demanded some attention this week, the joys of owning a house. Anyway enough about me, let’s get on with Monochrome Madness.

The next theme, which is just for the first week of December is Square, but could be rectangle as well.

I’m going to do it a little differently this week, finish with mine.

I was challenged to do a Black and White image on Instagram, so I decided to use this image for it. There was some great contrast in it and the wonky pier stood out.

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. Hi, Leanne. The pier shot is wonderful. I love the precariousness of it!

    Hi leanne, hope you are well. I love the contrast on the wonky pier, it’s lovely to have the highlights showing such an interesting geometric shape, really nice edit ! 🙂

  3. Hi Leanne, your image of the pier is just stunning….the lines are so great…not your traditional pier shot.

  4. I just love your shot! It is abstract yet real. It is definitely wonky! Beautiful shots this week!

  5. Your rendering of the wonky pier almost makes it look like a scaled model/sculpture. I don’t know if you had a different intent, but it is excellent, excellent work.

  6. Your work is stunning! Absolutely love the latest photo of the shack on the water! 🙂

  7. I love your wonky bridge in monochrome. It is actually a stand out image in both color and BW and that doesn’t happen very often! Thanks for squeaking mine in this week. I will try to be better about it getting it to you sooner. Interesting gallery again this week and I am looking forward to the square challenge!

    • Thank you Carrie, I’ve been wanting to photograph it for a while, such a great subject. That’s okay, you were lucky I decided to do the post this morning, I usually do it the day before. The next theme should be interesting.
