I’m pretty hit and miss with these because it depends upon the type of week that I am having and how busy I am whether I remember to send a photo to Leanne for her Monochrome Madness challenge. This week I have left it to the last minute. *oops*
Last weekend, we went road tripping with friends of ours just over the border and into Northern NSW. I took this photo late Saturday afternoon in the town of Lismore. The shops were all closed and the town was pretty quiet when we wandered around. Continue reading
It’s Wednesday again, and that means that Monochrome Madness is once again on Leanne Cole’s blog.
I’m a little intermittent with my participation but when I remember, then I do try to send a photo to Leanne for inclusion in the challenge. Continue reading
Leanne has decided that each month, they will have one week with a theme for those that want to participate. Those that don’t can still submit a monochrome image and there will be two galleries.
The theme this week is MM (for Monochrome Madness). It can be interpreted in any way that you wish.
Photographing this was a no-brainer for me. Continue reading
I haven’t been a regular contributor to Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness but I have been a contributor from time to time.
Today marks a special occasion for this challenge – the first birthday of Monochrome Madness!!
I’m sure when the girls began this challenge they certainly didn’t expect it to become so popular or to last for so long but it has endured the test of time. Long enough to celebrate blowing out a figurative candle at least. Continue reading
This week I have dug into my special folder of images converted to monochrome that I keep on my desktop to find this shot for Leanne and Laura’s Monochrome Madness challenge.
This photo was taken back in September at the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.
I love the play of light on these ranunculas.
This week I have chosen a photo that I took quite some time ago to enter for the MM Challenge on Leanne Cole’s blog.
I used to belong to our local camera club however with one thing and another I stopped attending. One day, one of the members (who lives only a few doors around the corner from me) knocked on the door and asked if he could pick some flowers from our garden for use in an workshop that afternoon.
I was more than happy to comply with his request. Continue reading
I have discovered that not everything converts well to monochrome. I spent some time the other day converting photos to black and white and discovered that some photos that I thought would look great didn’t and others that were borderline looked wonderful with some tweaks.
For this week’s Monochrome Madness challenge on Leanne Cole’s blog, I chose a photo that I took at the Teacup and Tea Pot display in Toowoomba a couple of weeks ago. Continue reading
Last week when the First Born came to swim with her children, she brought along a friend of hers who was really feeling the heat and needed to cool off.
I suggested that she might like to have some photos taken later if she felt so inclined seriously believing that she would say no.
However afterwards, the First Born asked me to get out my camera and shoot away. Continue reading
