Monochrome Madness – Outside of the city and into the country


I thought it might be fun to show some of the monochrome images I’ve done when I have travelled out of the city. I love architecture in the city, but I also enjoy seeing what is out in the country as well. These are from all around.

When I first started going to the Mallee 30 years I always found that colour photos never suited the landscape so I took hundreds of photos with black and white film. It was at a time where you had to choose what you wanted to do, colour or black and white. Now with digital we can shoot in colour and then convert. So many choices.

Here are some of those colour images taken with a digital camera and then converted to monochrome.

Please go to the end of the post for information on the next Monochrome Madness theme.


The next monochrome madness theme is being hosted by Sarah from the blog Travel with Me and she has chosen everyday objects.

Participating in Monochrome Madness

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. Inside the shearing shed is great. You are right about B&W, Leanne. I don’t think this one would be as fascinating in color.

  2. Love the clock. It’s my favourite; but the rest are cool too.

    I completely forgot about the “pingback” thing. Will try to do better for sure!
