The post should be started with an apology. I haven’t been around the last few days. In truth I’ve been up at my mums and the internet was so bad there that I couldn’t get onto this blog or much else. I’m home now and everything will return to normal. Starting with this weeks Monochrome Madness. This is the smallest week ever I think. A friend suggested it might be the end of it, and perhaps it is. I will keep it going for a little longer, but we might have to begin to see that it is the end.
Let’s take a look at this weeks MM.
I happened to go past these silos in Brim on my way to my mothers. The last few times I’ve photographed them it has been very sunny. On my way up on Sunday it rained continuously. I stopped and jumped out to get this one. It was too wet to do any long exposures, but I like the clouds. I also thought that since the painting was monotone that I could do a monochrome image with it. I like the moodiness of it, I hope you do too.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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.
