Leanne Cole does a weekly Monochrome Madness post consisting of all monochrome (mostly B&W) photos submitted by users each week. It’s not a contest, but a place for photographers to show their B&W work; anyone can submit photos and it’s also a good place for seeing what can be done when it comes to B&W.
At the beginning of each month, the submissions are supposed to follow a theme and for next week — Monochrome Madness No. 212 — the theme is Boat(s).
I live on an Island and we’ve been on a few cruises . . . there’s no question I have photos of boats but there is a question regarding my ability to pare them down and eventually choose only one. Because, as we all know, there can be only one.
I spent a fair amount of time going to various folders where I knew lived a few photos of boats . . . and I had to stop after I got to thirty photos. There are more I can dig up, but I’ve already spent too much time on this.
I won’t put all the photos up individually but they are all in the gallery below. I’ll put up a few at random and tell you which ones I picked.
Being on The Big Island, I was tempted to go local . . .
Not just those, but cruise ships also make for interesting subject . . .
. . . as does the local Marina . . .
Of course, I have what I think are decent candidates from our cruises . . .
And even considered going traditional . . .
It was a tough choice, but my submission to Monochrome Madness 212 is . . .
Here is the gallery of all the photos I considered (instruction on how to submit follow the gallery) . . .
Monochrome Madness is open to all. As mentioned, it is not a contest; it’s a showcase for people’s adventures in B&W photography. 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. Monochrome Madness comes out on Wednesdays in Australia but because they are ahead of us in time zones (about 23 hours or so), it’s actually published here the day before. Or it should be.
If you plan on submitting, please follow the procedures listed at the site.

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