Monochrome Madness: Week 19

This week I ventured south to Brunswick Heads for a day trip.  See my previous post:  Places that start with B: Brunswick Heads for more.

This particular photograph was taken very quickly as it was school holidays and everyone was using the footbridge to cross the Brunswick River on a fairly constant basis.  I was very lucky indeed to capture this without a hint of another person.  Brunswick Footbridge

Behind me, my friend was keeping an alert eye out to warn me if anyone was getting close so I didn’t block their path.  No-one in front and about 5 people behind rapidly approaching!  It was definitely snap and run!

Well not run… more of a hobble really.  It took a little while to get down on crotchety knees to get a lower perspective to try and capture the grain in the wooden boards.  Took more time trying to get up than it did to take the picture!

You will find Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness here to view her blog. Tomorrow (Wednesday) she will have a list of Monochrome participants to view.

  1. Lovely shot, Kaz! I know what it’s like dodging everything around you for a quick snap… but you did really well! I love the bit of sunshine and shadow in the middle! 🙂


  2. Your image really caught my eye from the monochrome madness challenge this week. Really gorgeous, that shadow in the middle is perfectly placed! I am sure it only does that for a few minutes and during a certain time of the year too. Thank you for sharing.


  3. Very impressive. The perspective is wonderful, as is the lack of colour adds another dimension to the photo.
    I also appreciate the effort it takes to get down and then up, as I have that problem too. 🙂


  4. Wonderful shot, Love the converging lines, the form of the clouds, the shadows across the footbridge. Pretty amazing for a quick grab!


I would love to hear from you...
