The brief for the project is to take two photos a week - one colour and one mono for 52 weeks. It is actually a great way to get into the habit of experimenting with mono images. I introduced my project to you on a blog post in early February - A new photography project for 2015 and I thought today I would bring you an update

But first there is one thing about mono images I thought I would mention here. You can take mono images "in camera" but then they will always be mono. Whereas if you take them in colour you can convert them to mono in post processing, and you will still have the original colour image as well.
Also mono is not just black and white. Mono can be shades of the same colour - ie yellow for instance! The trick is to convert to B&W in post-processing and then slide back in the predominant colour.
Some of these images you may have seen before on my posts.
Below you can see - February -
bush fire ravaged land, a beautiful frangipani flower in my garden, grapes ready for the wine harvest pick, the Busselton around the jetty swim, ingredients ready for breakfast, eggs in an old baking mould, arches at the University of Western Australia and flamenco dancers from Sol y Sombra at the Bunbury Multicultural Festival.
March - so far -
coffee at the Goose Restaurant in Busselton, at a flamenco dancing workshop, those lovely hydrangeas from my post last week, Laksa, and a geometric pattern.
This geometric pattern was a result of me playing around for a photography group topic - shapes. Patterns and shapes are all around us. You can create all sorts of interesting images from shapes. Can you guess what this is?
Update Friday 27 March - I am very happy to say I was awarded a "silver" at the Bunbury Photography Group last night for this image.
Licorice Allsorts! yum! I love them! do you?
Shapes are all around us. This image I won a "highly commended" award in the mono section of the photography group end of year awards last year. Just a simple image of steps going up the Bunbury tower lookout which I took with my camera one lunch time last year.
Architecture in particular gives us opportunity for taking photos of shapes - look up!
