MM 2-45: Monochrome Madness

The next theme is in two weeks. Always amazes me how quickly they come around.

The theme will be Straight.

I hope everyone is doing okay with the change of day. I’m certainly finding it easier and I’ve heard from a couple of others that they are finding it better too.


I took this shot the other morning in the city. We were watching the city waking up and these balloons came towards us from the other end of the river. They looked great, especially after a disappointing sunrise. I have the colour version over on my website.

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.

  3. Only a photographer with very good karma could be overlooking a city and have balloons suddenly rise over the river. You are favored by the gods, Leanne 🙂

  5. Fabulous, and I bet the view up there was wonderful, have you ever been for a flight over the city Leanne?

    February 18, 2016
    • No, not over the city, I would like to, but they are so expensive. I’ve been for one over the countryside.
