MM 3-51: Monochrome Madness

Late again, sorry, I had all the best intentions of doing it last night to schedule, but our power went a bit weird.  Some things were working, some were not. Very strange. Still, all good now.

I can’t believe next week is our third anniversary for Monochrome Madness. We didn’t decide on anything special. 

The next theme is Moving or Movement, I think we might have done this one before, oh well, it was a good one so why not. It is the first week in May for that one.


A couple of days a go a friend and I went down to St Kilda to take some photos and then we went under the Westgate Bridge. As we were walking around a tug boat headed out to the bay. So we waited for the ship to come down the Yarra River and go under the bridge. It is amazing watching some of the ships.

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. What a presence that cargo ship is. You really captured it’s size and length, I don’t think that is an easy thing to accomplish. I also like the bend in the bridge. Always a treat to see what your creative eye finds worthy of clicking the shutter.

    1. Thank you Carrie, I wasn’t so sure about it. That bridge is quite amazing, though I wish they had done more with it.

  2. Lovely images this week! Great work Leanne with the large ship and the bridge with a beautiful finishing touch. Very dynamic!
    And the sanddunes by gottatakemorepics look amazing!

  3. It has been good (and necessary) for me with a long break from the blog world…..
    But now it feels so good to be back – blogging and following – and it’s great to see your nice collections here in MM again.
    My opening photo yesterday was monochrome – I’ll send you this for one of your next MM’s.

    1. So glad that it was a good break Truels and that you are back now.
      I have received it, and will put it in next weeks, nice to have you with us again.

  4. Love the top photo, looks a bit like home! Three years? That’s amazing and congrats to all involved!! ☺️
