In April I shared quite a lot of photographs. There were a few from my garden, four from the Photo Challenge: pond, lunch, arch and nature. I also shared my recent entries for Monochrome Madness. Easter was the big event of the month and I shared my Easter never-ending card, gave away some crochet cross bookmarks I had… Read More Monthly Montage – April
All these photographs are the ones sent to ‘Monochrome Madness’ so will enlarge if you click on them. This year the Photo Challenge has rather distracted me from working on monochrome photographs but I have managed to send in fourteen pictures over the last few months. I love photographing bees and take every opportunity to… Read More Monochrome Madness offerings
I’ve added a gallery this time with photographs and commentry on each below. The first of these photograph was taken at the same time as I took the ‘Winter’ photograph for the photo challenge. Not much to say except that I thought the curved building and lamp post added extra interest. The next week I… Read More Monochrome Madness (Year 2: 40-52)
Here is another three months of my entries for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness. Since photography is not my primary hobby, and for lots of other reasons, I do not get out to take photographs every day or even every week. Holidays often provide the best opportunities for photography and so you will find that most,… Read More Monochrome Madness (Year 2: 27-39)
I actually forgot to send a photograph for week 14! These will be in week order as they don’t really fall into categories. No captions as they seem to drive everything crazy. During this time I was trying to think of creating something that was different to before and worthy of a comment and I… Read More Monochrome Madness (Year 2: 15-26)
As we approach half-way during the year, I was thinking that when we got there I would share my submissions for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness for any of you that might be interested. However I realised that twenty six photographs all at once might be a bit much so I am sharing for the moment… Read More Monochrome Madness (Year 2: 1-13)
As you probably know, I have been joining in with Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness and this week we had a ‘theme’ which was ‘MM’. A natural choice perhaps but at first I felt really stumped. Had a few crazy ideas that might have worked if I had a car or lots of time then saw… Read More Working to a Theme
From time to time I have talked about Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness posts and my entries. She has now reached week 52 and it has been decided that we should all send our favourite entry so far for a great favourites gallery. Here is a link to her post – http://leannecolephotography.com/2015/03/04/mm52-monochrome-madness-one-year-on/ I haven’t an entry… Read More Monochrome Madness – my entries
Thursday is my day for more off beat posts, so here is a photography post. Since I have been submitting pictures to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness I have become more and more interested in the difference between what makes a good colour picture and what works better in monochrome and would like to share some… Read More Colour or Monochrome?
As you may know, I have been sending in pictures for Leanne Cole’s ‘Monochrome Madness’ posts. The suggestion is that for Christmas we should submit a photograph that is monochrome but with just a touch of colour. I decided that I had better work out the best way to do this. I use Corel Photo… Read More Monochrome with a touch of colour
(The photographs below are repeated in the post but I wanted a way of displaying them so they could all be seen at a glance.) I have recently found Leanne Cole‘s ‘Monochrome Madness’ posts and been entering photographs. (The first two below). Now when I learnt to take photographs at about age six or seven… Read More Photography: colour or monochrome?
