MM51: Monochrome Madness 51

Just one week to go and we will have been doing this for a whole year, seem incredible.  So quickly next week, you need to go through all your images that you have sent to MM over the last year, and pick your favourite one and send it to me.  You can, if you like put a gallery of all the images you have done, or a selection of them on your blog, the link you send me should be the link to that post if you are doing it.  So there are two things you have to do, 1/ Send me your favourite MM image, and 2/ put a gallery on your blog and send the link to me.

I won’t be doing a gallery of my images, I did one recently and may just put a link to it.  I will have a gallery on my blog of all your favourite images.

I took this image on Monday morning when I went to Mordialloc early to do some scouting and to look around the Marina there.  Quite an amazing place and I got some lovely shots.  I love the little boat in this and have put the colour version of it up on Facebook and Google+.  I like the drama playing out between the sky and the boat in the sun.  As it turned out about an hour later the sun went, the lightning started and we had a great thunder storm.  Just what was needed to cool the place down after all the heat we’ve been getting.

Here is Laura Macky’s image for MM51, you can read about her image on here blog in this post, Slow and Steady – Monochrome Madness 51

Don’t forget all the instructions on how to enter your own images are at the bottom of the post.  If you have entered an image then please remember to check your image in the gallery, scroll down and see if anyone has left you any comments.

 

Now, if you wish to participate and submit an image here is how you do it:-

  • You must email me the image you want to include and if you have a blog or website, or somewhere else, please include the link. My email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au
  • The image size should be low res, so the largest side should be 1000 pixels or less.
  • Please insert either your name or your blogs name in the file name.
  • Remember I am on Australian time, so with GMT I am +11 hours at the moment, I publish my post on Wednesday morning.
  • If you need more help with sending images, and get confused about time zones, etc, well, there is a great website called The World Clock, if you go to that and look at Melbourne time, if it’s before 6pm on Tuesday evening, then you can still send me images.  If it’s after that time, you can send me an image, but it will be set aside for the following week.
  • Remember to include a link to your blog or website.
  • Please remember to resize your images, it is fairly simply, you just need to go into any editing software and usually under Image you will find, resize, scale, or image size, something like that and you can resize your image there. Change the dimensions to pixels and make the longest side 1000 pixels or smaller, hit return, and for most types of software that should change the other side automatically as well. Just remember to save it with a different name so you know it is the smaller version.  If you have any problems, please contact me, I don’t mind helping out.

Please note you don’t have to be a WordPress blogger to be in this challenge, you can have a link to a Facebook page, a Flickr page, anywhere really, or no link.  We just want to encourage people to do monochrome images, just for the madness of it. Just to let you know also, that as soon as the challenge is published, all emails and images you have sent me are deleted from my computer.  I respect your copyright and would never keep any of the images.

 

MM50: Monochrome Madness 50

Oh wow, 50 already, only two weeks to go until 52 and a year of Monochrome Madness, how amazing.  I would like to say the votes are in, but since no one really voted, I have to say the general feeling is that we should all post our favourite image that we have submitted in the last year.  On your own blog that day, it has been suggested that you all put a gallery of some of your images from the last year.  Sounds like a nice idea. I think that sounds good.

The other thing that is has been suggested is that we do some theme monochromes, not every week, but maybe once a month, maybe the first Wednesday each month, what do you think? I know some people won’t want to do it, but it could be fun. I also want to apologise again for not responding to all your emails, it has been two of the hardest weeks of my life, but hopefully everything will be fine now.

royalexhibition-building-fountain-melbourne-monochrome

My image was taken a couple of weeks ago when I went into the city to take some photos of the Royal Exhibition Building at night.  This man reeking of alcohol came past and stopped to chat, he suggested coming back when it was dark and then going to the spot, where this image was taken, with the big spot light behind it and taking a photo.  He took off, then came back to show us a photo he had on his phone.  It looked like it would be worth coming back for, and I think it was.  The light behind the fountain was fantastic.

MM49: Monochrome Madness 49

It is getting close, only a three weeks and then it will be MM52.  I need your input.  I’ve had two suggestions for MM52, one is to do something special with the number one or 5 and 2, not quite sure what, or the other suggestion is we all pick our favourite photo that we have submitted to MM over the year and then we can do a gallery on our own blogs, if you wish of some or all of your images.  Obviously I won’t do the gallery, as all your images will be on mine, but that’s okay.  I don’t mind if people want to send one special image for it as well, if they have never entered.  I think it would be great if it was a big week.

Please let me know what you think!

Now on with this weeks Monochrome Madness.

MM48: Monochrome Madness 48

The other day someone reminded me that MM52 was coming around fast, and I couldn’t believe it, I had forgotten all about it, but they were right, it is almost here.  I guess the next thing is to decide if we want to do something special for it or not. We have done so for other milestones, so do we do it for this massive one?

I was thinking maybe we could all pick our favourite images that we have submitted and go with those. That is one idea, what else do you think?

emu-flat-church-monochrome

This is another image I did from the same place as the image I showed you last week, from Emu Flat.  The other image was of the school house, but this is the Church next door.  You can open the gate and go into the yard where the building is, unlike the school house.  We had a look through the windows and I don’t think it is really used as a Church anymore, but I could be wrong. It is being looked after as the grass was mowed.  We tried to do some long exposures, but the sky was too white and had nothing, so I have replaced the sky in this to give the appearance of a long exposure.

MM47: Monochrome Madness 47

Here we are again, another week of Monochrome Madness.  I just want to welcome the new people who have contributed this week.  I would also like to remind people to check their images in the gallery for comments, as many people take the time to look at each image and comment on as many of them as they can.

flinders-australia-boat-ramp-pier

I took this image last Sunday morning on an unexpected trip to Flinders down along the coast.  I hadn’t planned on going there, but it was a lovely surprise to end up there.  This is an old boat ramp, and judging by the rust on the rail I would guess it isn’t used anymore.  It looks great and makes for great images.

MM46: Monochrome Madness 46

This week has gone by in a blur, I can’t believe it is has been so a mad rush to get the images into the post so I could publish it.  I hope I didn’t get anything wrong in my rush.  I won’t talk long today, I’m tired, and I’ve been out taking lots more photos.  On with Monochrome Madness 46.

I showed you this image last Sunday, but it was in colour.  The colour version came after the black and white one.  I quite like how dramatic it is, it is one of my favourite images at the moment, though that could change any time soon.

MM45: Monochrome Madness 45

This last week has been very surprising for MM as I have been getting lots and lots of images by new people.  It has been wonderful, love getting emails from new people who would like to be part of Monochrome Madness.  Someone asked me if it was okay if all they had was a Instagram account, my answer has to be yes, it doesn’t matter, you don’t even have to have a link, it is about participating.  Monochrome Madness is all about challenging yourself to produce monochrome images each week.

I want to apologise again too, I know you have all sent me emails, but it has been a busy time here and I haven’t had time to respond to them, I am sorry, I want to, but sometimes I just don’t have the time, and this week is one of those.

banyule-flats-approaching-storm-long-1

I got this image late last week.  It was just before we were about to get a lot of bad weather, so the the wind was blowing and the clouds were moving.  I went to Banyule Flats to get this, unfortunately it basically started raining, so I didn’t have a lot of time to play with the filters.  This is what I got, I’m happy with it, but I would like to do this more.
