Monochrome Madness – Piers into the water

No theme this week, but I have to admit I quite enjoy setting myself a little theme. I was looking through older photos and found these piers.

I do think piers are great subjects for monochrome and I also like long exposures for it as well. This is another subject that I think many photographers love to photograph as well. I wish I could say why, but I can’t. I love the opportunity to go and photograph them.

There is something about doing a long exposure with them as well. They seem almost dream like, not quite real. Maybe it gives them a magic quality. What do you think?

We have a new host for Monochrome Madness next week and it is PR from the blog Flights of the Soul and she has chosen SCULPTURES for us to do. I don’t know about you, but I think it was a great idea for a theme. I just need to find some now.

  1. I think architecture in general is perfect for B&W photography. When it comes to piers, it’s all about geometry and leading lines, that’s why photographers love them! Fantastic shots!

  2. I think the long exposure does give a dreamy feel to the water and then the leading lines of the piers make you think about what’s out there. I love all these.
