Thank you very much to Amy at “The World is a Book” for inviting me to join in the 5 day black and white challenge. Amy’s site has a great selection of beautiful photos taken from her travels around the world. She shares a great quote from Saint Augustine “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
There are two rules for this challenge. The first is to post a black and white image daily for 5 days and then to invite someone different to join each day. The first I can just about manage, but I’m going to do my own version of the second bit. Rather than invite someone to participate in the challenge, I will use each post to introduce a site, forum or challenge where I think that you will find some amazing black and white photos and photographers. Many will need no introduction and may be familiar to you already, but if you’re new to them and love monochrome, please follow the links and visit their sites.
Leanne Cole and Laura Macky are both very talented and hard working photographers and together they bring us the weekly exhibition of black and white photography known as Monochrome Madness. This week will be the 53rd week it has been running, which is just amazing. It has built up over the year and now gets about 50 photographers a week submitting their images to the post. If you want to be treated to come stunning black and white images, click on this link to visit Monochrome Madness.
