MM 2-26: Themed Monochrome Madness

Today is our next theme and for this one we are looking at monochrome urban images.

As mentioned previously there will be no Monochrome Madness for the rest of September. The next one will be the first Wednesday of October. It will be another theme, so MM 2-27 will be a themed week on the 7th of October.

The next theme will be Country.

Onto some Urban monochrome images.


This so urban, in Melbourne it is right in the middle of the city, well almost. I also love long exposures and one day I went into the city to do some. I really like this one of the Seafarers Bridge.

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.

Monochrome Madness each week and 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
  • 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.

  4. Great pics. Do you Photoshop to convert them to Black and White? Any special tricks for making them look interesting?

    September 1, 2015
    • I do use photoshop or lightroom to convert. I did a tutorial on it recently. It was a few weeks back. Let me know if you can’t find it.

  5. I love your long exposure, Leanne! This technique is something I’m beginning to try -actually tried my hand with it at the Statue of. Liberty and the Brooklyn waterfront. What I did learn is that it helps to have fast-moving clouds! Looking forward to trying again in NYC with you 🙂

    September 1, 2015
    • We will be doing some in New York Stacy, you will have a few of us to ask questions. I love doing them. I can’t wait to see you there, it has been so good meeting people so far.
