MM 2-39: Monochrome Madness

Welcome back to Monochrome Madness for 2016. It is nice to see that some of you have remembered to send in your images for this week. It is a small group, but lovely all the same. I am still thinking about a theme for next month, will let you know when I come up with it.

My image this week taken while I was in the US. If you want to see the colour version and learn about it then please go to the blog on my website.

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 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.

  7. That highway is a familiar sight for sure. Did you know that the water supply for San Francisco comes from Yosemite?

    So what is this months theme?

    January 6, 2016
    • Thanks Ted, I loved driving on it, very different to our roads in many ways. I think I did know that actually. I remember hearing something about it while I was there.
      Not sure about the theme, I’ve had one suggestion and we might go with that, I will announce it next week, but it won’t be until February. It is holiday time here, this is our summer holidays.

      January 6, 2016
      • Have a nice holiday! I’ll think of something about where I live to share.

        January 7, 2016
