Monochrome Madness – From early on


This week for our non theme week I thought I might take a wonder back in time to 2014. I believe Monochrome Madness first started in that year so it has been going on and off for 10 years now.

I went back to have a look and it seems the first Monochrome Madness was done in February 2014. It hasn’t been consistent over that time and what we did in the beginning is different to how it is done now, but it is nice to see it still going.

For me it has always been about doing something I don’t normally do, black and white or monochrome images. Sometimes I have push myself to do it because I usually prefer everything in colour. How about you?

I’ve been trying to get fitter for my trip, so I’m kind of tired, so I am taking the easy way out today and showing old photos. Like I said these are some of my images from my first year with it. I hope if you were following me back then you enjoy seeing them again, if not I hope you enjoy seeing them for the first time.

Next week is our theme week and we have a new host. Her name is Claire and she is from the blog MRS. CLAIRE GUTKNECHT. She has chosen the theme of Emotions.

Participating in Monochrome Madness

You can also leave a pingback, do they still call them that? Basically, you put a link to my monochrome madness post in your post and it leaves a link in the comment section.

Don’t forget to check out the Monochrome Madness page. On this page, the next theme is announced and there is also all the information for participating. We have also included a list of themes that will be coming in the future so if you want to be able to plan ahead you can. They aren’t in order, but will happen. Please go and check it out.

  1. I play around with black and white and often after all that I end up with putting the colour back. But it does have it charm.

    1. I’ve been known to do that as well Elke, I’m not a believer that everything is better in monochrome, but there are some things that are. Thank you.

    1. I remember that too Ritva, I was looking through some older posts on my old blog and saw you there. It was a lot of work, but I like this format so much more. Thank you.
