Monochrome Madness 2-26 – Urban

For this week’s Monochrome Madness by Leanne Cole, we have a theme; Urban….I took this a little further to Urban Decay. A few weeks ago, I did a similar post on some Urban Exploration I had done. It was something I really enjoyed, the gritty, rawness of the imagery. So this week I thought I would take it a step further into Urban Decay on another level. Grungier, darker, grittier, but a ray of light, a touch of humanity or is it the light at the end of the tunnel?

Til next time, happy snapping

Monochrome Madness 2-22 – Bridges

This week on Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness has a theme – Bridges, having a theme and having a month in advance to plan, makes things a bit easier. But Melbourne’s weather does not! This was taken on a very cold, wet day in Melbourne a few weeks ago with my new wide angle, however on checking I had a focal length set to 19mm? So much for wide angle, but I still love the photo.

MM2.22- I straightened and cleaned up a little, then used a 75% Orton Effect (that’s why there is a slight halo effect around the lamp posts), adjusted the exposure slightly and then converted to B&W, then added a vignette..and voila! A Bridge, one of the many in Melbourne over the Yarra.

Monochrome Madness 2-21

This week’s Monochrome Madness I’ve this image which I’ve titled  – ‘Just do it’. Perhaps they over did it? It begs the question why is one single running shoe just left there in the park, on a hill? Where is the other shoe, where is the owner, did something happen? I’m sure that there is a story there somewhere? Does the owner know it is missing? Maybe I should write my own?MM2.21-– Julz
