MM 3-48: Monochrome Madness


It seems to be a long month, well long for the themes, as the next one is still two weeks away. I gather this theme isn’t very popular as I haven’t been getting many submissions for it. I do have trouble from time to time working out what we should do for the themes. Always happy to get help with them.

So, the next theme is Culture, and as I said in a couple of weeks.


This was taken a couple of weeks ago when I was in the city taking some photos. I thought I would try it in monochrome. I usually prefer night shots in colour, but I quite like how this turned out. I processed this using the Wacom MobileStudio Pro. I have been loaned one from @wacomanz to try out and maybe write a review for. It is quite amazing, though they are expensive, so I hope I don’t fall in love with it. The ability to use it like a sketch pad with Photoshop is really cool. I could see myself going out for coffee and processing photos while I’m out. Oh no, it almost sounds like I’m starting to like it too much.

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. Hi Leanne. I feel pretty stupid, but what does mm 3-48 actually mean? And how do I follow this blog, so that I can get the weekly challenge easily? Thanks.

    1. I guess you would really only know what that meant from following it for years, so the 3 means we are in our third year of doing it, and the 48 is the week number, so it is th 48th week of the 3rd year. After MM 3-52 it will be MM 4-1. I hope that explains it.
      I have a subscribe button at the top of the sidebar, if you go there you can follow the blog. Thanks
