MM 3-4: City Theme

MM 3-4: City Theme

Here we are and it is our theme for this month. Not as many entries as we usually get for the themes, but it is still good and still lots of great entries. So I’m not going to talk too long, let’s just get on with it.

Hopefully the gallery shows up when it is published this time, if not, I will have to look into again.


I took this last weekend and when I saw it I thought it would be great for the theme. The skyline, the rowers on the river, nice light, what more did I need. I tried to imitate the early morning colours, but I don’t think it worked 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 Wednesday 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. The gallery of city views is interesting and diverse. I love it!

  2. Some Super pictures here, Leanne..
    What’s next months theme?

  3. suzanne bowditch

    Love the image of the horse (No 25) 🙂

  4. My favourites are 2, 5, 9, 20, 24, 26 and special mention to the horsey. 🙂

  5. Interesting mix. My favourites are 3, 18,19 27 for the mood created.

  6. Very nice gallery! My personal favorite for this week is photograph #16. The wave-shape on the front and the way the photograph was edited works out great 🙂
    And nice picture you have used for the post (#18), really connects well with the layout 🙂

  7. Oh my, I am the only one that completely missed the theme. My horsey sticks out even more. 😀 I am so sorry, Leanne.

  8. All pretty good.
    There’s a lot of angularity and different architecture.
    My favourites would have to be 1, 10, and 25.

  9. It’s great to see all of the different cities and perspectives in one place and from all over the world. Awesome!
    I got distracted while writing my email this week and so it didn’t get sent – but I have posted and linked up as well 😀
    Such a diverse theme and gallery this week!

  10. I need to take more city shots!! Wonderful images this week of beautiful cities. Thanks for showcasing mine!

  11. Great “city” entries this week! I just love your shot with the rowers – brings back some memories watching rowers in Hawaii. Monochrome (black and white with all shades of gray) has a wonderful feel and look when capturing “city” – buildings and architecture. My favorites are 3, 7, 18 and 27.

  12. Just had a quick first look but can’t see how you add comments on this sort of gallery. What am I missing? Thanks.

    • You aren’t missing anything RJ, it is the downside of this gallery, that you can’t leave comments on individual images, I guess the one real problem with self hosting. Sorry. We suggested last week that you could leave a comment in the main section and just write who it is for, the number of the image. Or if they have it on their blog go and leave it there.

    • Thank you. I must have missed the bit about comments last week. Been distracted by other things lately like my garden!

    • That’s okay, I know how that can happen.
