Monochrome Madness Week 51

Its been almost a year since Leanne Cole started Monochrome madness and got us all interested in black and white photography.  I didn’t start participating for a couple of months after that but my appreciation of black and white has grown immensely and now when I take a photo or even before at times I am always thinking “I wonder what this would look like in black and white”.

Next week to celebrate the one year anniversary we will put forth what we feel is our best black and white photo that we took over the past year and on our own blog we will post a gallery of our favourite submissions.  I am quite looking forward to going back over them again.

So for this week I have put forth a photo that I took at Redcliffe, a seaside suburb of mudflats redcliffe
Brisbane a few months ago.  I went there particularly to shoot the beautiful historic Shorncliffe Pier which is a lovely old wooden pier on the east side of Brisbane.  It is unfortunately worse for wear and you cannot walk on it but has loads of character.  If interested these are my previous posts and photography at RedcliffShorncliffe  and surrounds, Shorncliffe Pier BW and Shorncliffe Pier.

Anyway the next day we had a look around Redcliffe and surrounds and as the tide was out there were a few old dead trees sitting on the mud.  They look like they are reaching out for help.  Its been raining up here for so long I haven’t ventured out to take some new photos but fingers crossed for next weekend.  That’s when I decided to have a look through my old photos and I thought maybe this one might be nice in black and white and I was quite pleased with the result.

For more black and white photography please head to Leanne Cole’s website for MM51.
