While going through Instagram the other day a photo inspired me to look at my photos of the Flatiron building in New York for Monochrome Wednesday. I found one that I thought might work.
Monochrome Wednesday – Flatiron in New York
Doing monochrome is not something I just do and this challenge is great for me for that very reason. It makes me think outside the box. Still every week I have to try and work out what I will do for it.
This week I got inspiration from Instagram. I saw someone had done a photo of the Flatiron building and wondered if I could do something similar.
Into the archives I went to the images I had taken of the Flatiron building when I was in New York back in 2015. One of the things I’ve learned to do when travelling, on the rare occasions I go somewhere, is to take as many images as possible from all different angles. I was happy to find one that was taken straight on. Perhaps not perfectly symmetrical, but good enough for what I wanted to try.
It isn’t as shot and I’ve taken some liberties with the background in particular. I haven’t done an image like this before, but I’m happy with the results. Doing images like this are always great for learning.
This is the final version. If you want to try the challenge details are below the image.
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.
