Due to the events of the past couple of weeks I have been a little lax in my contributions to Leanne Cole (and Laura Macky’s) Monochrome Madness challenge.
However I’m back.
I keep a folder on my desktop of monochrome images that I intend to submit to this challenge but always manage to find something else that catches my eye and change my mind.
On the weekend the Garden Gnome and I attended the HQ Holden Run.
Although we don’t own a HQ (we have an HZ) we still tagged along for this fun day. This year was a new venue and after a scenic drive we found ourselves in a Heritage Park.
Now when I read this on the flyer I thought that was the name of the park we would all end up at. However, it is in fact a heritage village full of antiques and heritage items.
So along with the 300+ cars that were there that day, we took a ride around in an old council bus and watched a vintage steam roller keep the dust on the roads down.
I was beside myself and clicked away at so many things.
I must say that the Garden Gnome did look a little askance at me when I went to take this photo though.
I loved the combination of shadows and dead tree branches on this old concrete water pipe laying on the edge of the field (right behind the vintage fire engine).
Before I converted this photo to monochrome, it looked almost monochrome in its colours.
I have another monochrome image to share with you as well. This was my contribution to Week 35 of the challenge (and can be found on Leanne’s blog) however I didn’t post it to my own blog.
Taken in a church in Toowoomba during the Carnival of Flowers.
I hope you enjoy. 🙂
