Monochrome Wednesday – Malmsbury in Infrared

Monochrome Wednesday - Malmsbury in Infrared

Yesterday I found myself in Malmsbury with my infrared camera and I thought some of the photos would be good for Monochrome Wednesday.

Monochrome Wednesday – Malmsbury in Infrared

You did read that right, I said some.

Usually, I just do one photo, but I loved so many of the photos from yesterday that I couldn’t decide which to use. In the end, I decided not to. There are three for you.

The last couple of days I’ve been out taking photos. They have been full days and I’m a bit tired now, but I’m so glad I took the IR camera with me. I don’t do that enough. While I’ve also been enjoying taking photos with my new Fujifilm X-T3, I also enjoy seeing what I can get with the Infrared camera. Maybe one day I will be able to convert a Fujifilm camera to IR.

These were taken in the park in Malmsbury. It is so beautiful at the moment. The leaves are coming back on the trees and the water is wonderful. You will see more from there.

I’ve been experimenting more with the processing as well. It is good to keep trying things.


Joining in

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 groupTPM 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.

On another note, my father died

For most people, this would be a sad time. You don’t know how much I wish it was for me as well. Sadly it isn’t.

It has been almost 35 years since I spoke to him. I knew this day will come and I always wondered how I would feel. To be honest, I don’t really know how I feel. There is a level of sadness, but perhaps that comes more from the fact that his death reminds me of how he ruined my childhood.

Perhaps there is also a sense of relief that he will never be able to hurt me again. I won’t have to protect myself from him anymore.

It feels like a chapter has closed. That part is gone now. I’ve had a lot of counselling around what happened to me growing up and I think that has helped me to deal with this. It just feels like another ending. With that, I will end this post.

  1. Some great IR images, Leanne! As you say, it’s good to keep trying new things…keep curious, keep learning

  2. I love your infrared shots. I wanted to acknowledge your feelings regarding your father, being a survivor of abuse myself I empathise with you, it is hard to feel anything,but by the same token there is that tinge of sadness when someone who was supposed to protect and love you but didn’t,dies. Sending you healing loving thoughts.

    1. Thank you Elizabeth. It is hard, it is such a strange feeling. I just don’t know how I am meant to feel. Thank you so much Elizabeth, really appreciate your words.
