One Word Sunday: Monochrome

How shall I approach this?

In terms of a visual image, monochrome means varying tones of one colour, and Black &  White is often referred to as monochrome, or mono.

To illustrate varying tones of one colour, here’s an image I have shown before, but it illustrates varying tones of one colour admirably:

All Blue

Otherwise, in life, things/experiences that are monochrome will be colourless, arid, monotonous, dreary, dull…. Well, here’s an image which, in addition to the fact that it predominantly  illustratesvarying tones of brown (even the lone figure is in brown)….the surroundings look rather monotonously dull and dreary:

Solitary in (almost) monochrome

And here’s what we know as a monochrome photograph (and Debbie has shown us some very striking monochrome):

so I think I have covered monochrome!

  1. Covered indeed, Sue. Every aspect.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I don’t find the ‘brown’ image as dull at all, it’s a story telling image.

    You certainly did a great job covering this challenge. I am struck by the last one, would love to be able to spin a story about it.

  4. Excellent!
    These are great monochromes, Sue, and the solitary street scene is fascinating despite its lack of colours.

  5. All superb images Sue but I have a fondness for the sea of blue 😃😃 xx

  6. you covered it well. I specially love the bike lady in front of a gallery.

  7. Yes, you’ve got it covered. I really like the All Blue image.
