Monochrome Madness – Early morning along the river

Does a human being have a dollar value?

It has rolled around again, Monochrome Madness, and today I’ve converted an image from an early morning along the river here in Melbourne.

Today is one of those days that you just want to hide inside. It is going to be hot, really hot. Friday is going to be even worse. It would seem our luck with missing out on the bushfires might be about to finish. Australia really is burning right now. It is a scary time really and while our government is fighting and pretending the climate isn’t changing the rest of us are suffering. Apparently the time to talk about what has to be done for fires is never the right time.

This image was taken back in winter. Our very mild winter. It wasn’t very cold and we didn’t get a lot rain, hence the problems we are having now.

The city can be so beautiful at that time of the morning. I need to get in there soon. Take a few photos and then get out before the day warms up.

Here is my image. Take care everyone and those of you around Melbourne, keep cool, and those in Victoria, please stay safe, oh and that includes everyone in Australia.

Joining in

It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you enjoy the monochrome images. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook groupTPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.

  1. So sorry it’s fire season there. We just ended ours. It seems that every year the fires get worse. Then come the mud slides, especially in So. California. I’m not sure a wet winter is the answer. Last winter we had a huge amount of rain and the fires hit just the same. Take care!

    1. It certainly is fire season, perhaps the worse we have ever had. We have never seen fires like this before. Thankfully we don’t get the mud slides, not that I’m aware of anyway. We just really need a few days of very heavy rain to stop the fires. Thank you Anne.
