Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness: My Contributions to Date

I’ve mentioned it before . . . Leanne Cole does a weekly Monochrome Madness post consisting of all the B&W photos she receives. These are not contests. Rather, it’s a place for photographers to show their B&W work; anyone can submit photos.

Every four weeks she has a themed post. Last week it was water. I showed my contribution in the last post, but it is perhaps worth showing again as a part of the summary of my themed contributions to date.

In reverse order, the three themed contributions to date were “Water” . . . 


. . . “Fences” . . . 


. . . and the letters “MM” . . . 

Alaska Cruise 2012

My regular contributions included scary bugs . . . 

2014 Flowers,

. . . good eats . . . 

Winter, Snow, Scenery,

Flowers, bees,insects,

Vegetation made a few appearances . . .

. . . including fake vegetation.


Of course, this being me, I have birds.

. . . and a hawk:

Northern Goshawk,

I don’t often do architecture, but I thought this church would work in B&W.

Cruise 2014, Barbados,

Inanimate objects also made an appearance . . . 

Vintage Cameras,

Still Life

Still Life

Notice the cups are not B&W . . . that’s because ‘monochrome’ is not just B&W. For instance, this shell sitting on a wine cork . . . 

macro, sea shells,

I even contributed my frog furniture . . . 

Snow, Winter,

This week I contributed another attempt at an ‘artsy’ shot . . . 

seeds, grass seeds

Monochrome Madness is open to all, and as mentioned is not a contest . . . it’s a showcase for people’s B&W efforts. Professional or amateur, all are welcomed. If you have a favorite B&W photo or even a not-so-favorite, consider contributing; you will not be judged, and the photo might provide enjoyment for a pair of eyes or two.

The next themed challenge: the letter “K”. I’ll have to think about that. 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me with recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.
