Houda Point, CA
Staring you down
Don’t get to close, the wilds
Find a perch, basque
Into the view feeling
The earth is alive beneath you
Mother nature showing off
Is that her laughing
You can’t help but feel it deep
Your chest yearning with each new wave approaching
Hear, no matter what
Happens stay and embrace
It is here, week 52 of Monochrome Madness. Each week, for a year, Leanne Cole and Laura Macky have brought together photographers from all corners of the world. Asking for monochrome images. The gallery HERE this week is made up of our favorite entry from the past year. We are encouraged to include a gallery of other entries, so here is my gallery from past Monochrome Madness entries. I participated in 45 of the 52 weeks.
I was nominated by The Story Tellers Abode to take part for 5 days, posting a black and white image and a story/poem/writing each day. Louise hosts a lovely blog with enchanting images and touching stories and poems. Her blog is worth a look through.
I am encouraged to pass the nomination along but I don’t really want to specifically name people. Instead, I am going to offer a link to 5 of my favorite photographers that mostly shoot in black and white. If you would like to take part in this ongoing challenge please consider yourself nominated. Simple enough. Today’s photographer is Imagery of Light, I am new to her blog but I really appreciate her work. As her blog name implies she uses light as a main focus of her photographs. She doesn’t strictly shoot in black and white but there is a monochromatic feel to her simple elegant images that I think fits with this theme. HERE is an example.
