MM 2-30: Monochrome Madness

Here it is again, and we are doing Monochrome Madness again. A slow week for many I think, but that’s okay.

Next week is our themed week so if you haven’t got your Cloud photo in yet, you have a week, or until Monday to get it to me.  No idea what I am going to do, but I’m sure something will come up.


Something a little different for me this week, another street photo. I saw this woman in the Bourke Street Mall last Wednesday and she looked so engrossed in her book that I had to take a photo. Not something we see a lot anymore, people sitting around reading books.

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.

  2. I’ll say it again Leanne, I love your MM posts. Everybody does such beautiful work.

    I know that you’ve been contemplating putting this series to bed but I hope that you don’t. It really is a thrill for me to see these images. To see this enthusiasm from your participants.

    • That is great to hear. I agree, so much great work.
      As long as people keep sending the photos, I will keep doing it I think.

  5. Great images. I like your lady reading a book. Reading a printed book is indeed becoming a rare pleasure, along with sitting on a bench. I’ve finally got some images ready but next week is clouds! I’ll have to see if can find any of my old ones.
