MM 3-45: Theme Shadows


Here we are once again, and once again I’m running late. I had a massive day yesterday and I didn’t seem to get time for anything, one being doing this post. There have been some amazing submissions for the theme of Shadows, it was a great one really. Always good to see what everyone has sent. I hope you enjoy them too.

We need another theme for next month, I was thinking culture, whatever that means to you. Of course, as always, your interpretation.


I took this last week on a day that was very warm. I was at Heide, an art gallery near me and I saw this massive tree with the shadows and had to capture it. The light wasn’t great, it is never is in the middle of the day when it is really hot, but there it is.

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. Gorgeous shot of the tree, Leanne. Thanks again for a great challenge. I’m learning a lot about the subtleties of monochrome.

    1. Thank you Patti, I’m so glad to hear you are enjoying it. It is a lot harder than it appears. I’ve learned a lot since doing it.

  2. Great collection of photographs. I just couldn’t find anything suitable for this week, but will try to get one in for next week and I’ll start working on the next theme.

  3. Shadows and monochrome – seem to gp hand in hand. Really great photographs! Your shot is fabulous and I imagine the tree is a fabulous vision to be seen.

    1. Who knew, haha, they do and it was you wasn’t it that suggested it, I have forgotten, I’m getting old. Thank you, it is quite a tree might have to do similar shots.

    1. Thank you Laura, though I can’t take the credit, I think it was Debby that suggested it, I think. Thank you so much.
