A couple of weeks ago I took some photos of overhead bridges in the city and thought one would be a good image for Monochrome Wednesday today.
Monochrome Wednesday – Bridges overhead
This was taken at a new building, the Peter MacCallum hospital which specialises and cares for cancer patients. It is an incredible building and one I was new to.
My friend Steve suggested we go there to take photos. I was more than happy to tag along.
It has been nice to see new buildings that are going up that are architecturally interesting. This one is no exception. It has lots of interesting lines and curves. It is a great subject for monochrome due to those lines and textures.
Sometimes you can convert an image to black and white and then you realise it just doesn’t work. There isn’t enough interest in the building. However, it was good to see it really worked with this one.
Where this was taken there are a few hospitals together. The overpasses or bridges connect them together. It makes it more interesting photographically.
While there I took a lot of photos many of them didn’t work as well. I didn’t notice this one at first, but when I went back to the folder today it stood out.
It was the way all the lines seemed to be going in lots of different directions. The mixture of curves and straight lines. I was attracted to it.
It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you are enjoying the monochrome challenge again. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook group, TPM 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.
