MM 3-35: Monochrome Madness

There have been a couple of people who have asked about Christmas themed images. I’m not opposed to it, but in the past when I have tried to do anything to do with Christmas the reception has been a bit ho hum. Maybe we could have one week, the week right before that we could have a Christmas themed post. It wouldn’t have to be necessarily that, but maybe how it is where you are, Don’t forget I like snow.

The week before Christmas, MM will have that theme. Okay, so looking at the calendar, that is next week. Oh dear, I really must catch up. So if you can, that would be great, but if you can’t don’t stress about it, just send in your images.

My image this week is the old shearing shed up at my mum’s. I was there last week and got to take lots of photos with the Nikon D500 and this is one. It isn’t often I hit the shed late in the day, but there I was. I love how the afternoon light breaks through all the cracks and holes.

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.

  2. Once more, lots of strong images. My favourites are the one of the staircase and the one of the cobblestones. Your image of the interior of the shed is magnificent. The handling of light and shadow is perfection.
