Monochrome Madness – Week 21

It’s Wednesday and time for Monochrome Madness again.

This week, I was able to photograph a beautiful violin. Such a treat!


Many thanks to  Leanne and Laura.. (as always for starting and curating this fun challenge).. Be sure to pop on over to check out all the wonderful monochrome entries for week 21!


We don’t know what we’re doing!

The ornamental pear is trying to bud in the middle of winter – they don’t know what to do :)  The weather is crazy!


I wandered outside in my break and noticed the buds and little blossoms on this tree trying to do their best because the day is awesome!!  Yes, the sun is shining and birds are singing etc :)

I took a bit of creative license while editing these..

The first image is the original and the second has a cross processed filter + diffusion added.  Both have a vignette added as well.

I love flowers big or small… and I enjoy finding them, especially in unexpected places.. and… I needed  a flower in between car posts ;)


Vehicle Abstracts #4

Today’s partial view is the headlight and front guard of the old truck.


Have a great week… I’ve got a busy one with work this week, but I’ll post when I can :)


Vehicle Abstracts #2

Today I have another close up to share.

The 2nd in my vehicle abstract series… and another close up of the dashboard, from a slightly different pov.


This image is the one that started me off on this little closeup adventure.  I thought the light shining onto the moss was amazing!! :)


Snowy Morn..

This morning we woke up to a beautiful covering of white… it was only roughly 1/2 inch deep but we don’t see white like this here, every year.  Other parts of Australia have far more snow.

This is what we saw :)

Snow day


Vehicle Abstracts #1

As I sit here typing this afternoon, it’s been snowing outside and inclement weather is closing in.  I’m feeling very thankful for my warm fireplace :)

Another thing I’m thankful for – I managed to get out the other day in between rain and weather to wander with my camera.  I visited the old jalopy again, that is such a favourite of mine – this time looking at it in a different way.  I thought I’d share these with you.

Today’s image is a partial view of the dashboard.


I love nature’s complimentary colours – the green moss and red rust.  As you can see there are signs of age everywhere!
