If you say monochrome to Ms. Mexcessive, she says no. But then she softens and only smuggles in one other colour. On average.
Strangely, I don’t mind and even enjoy (some) other people’s black and white photos, but this is because they know what they are doing.
Patti includes “different shades of one colour” in her instructions, or this rebel would suffer.
Firstly, because I already did
one black&white post on this blog and didn’t plan to do another soon, and secondly because a day without colours is, well… night.
So, without a hint of regret, instead of my attempt at bringing some soul into my photos this way (as the famous quote describes b&w photography), here is my monomochrome colour fest. But you’ll see, I did try to keep it unicolour or at least feature one dominant colour.
It starts out in gentle tones but it soon gets excessive. Don’t forget to click on the last one and view the photos again in the horizontal gallery. (Goes for the big screen.)
A highly stylish Tuscan cat blending with the surroundings. As is this house snail on the wall of our house (I might have changed the photo’s orientation). Shells on our beach. Giardino dei tarocchi is always an inspiration. Niki de Saint Phalle was such a phenomenon. One more from there. I could have cropped those people out but didn’t want to. These poppies are saying: monochrome, in your dreams. These tree droppings are more uniform. As is this paint. The tone of our facade. Not really monochrome but getting there. Here Mr. Blue and Ms. Pink are making a monochrome baby. Piran, Slovenia. Sometimes, but really rarely, colours are not necessary. Our beach. This old photo of mine reminds me of a painting. (Not monochrome. Why? Is that a theme?) I didn’t crop that green out on purpose, again. Here we have a seagull ghost. (No funny business. It was a reflection.) The Adriatic Sea in Slovenia. The pine trees of Rome’s Villa Pamphili park. Almost Africa. The view from Massa Marittima in May. Some forgotten droplets on my favourite green. Sometimes it’s like this if I step out. And sometimes like this. Over the Orbetello lagoon. Okay, I know, far from monochrome but closest to it. Exhibition “The Parallel Worlds”, by Alan Hranitelj, Ljubljana. True monochrome, by Niki de Saint Phalle again. This is inside her “Oracle” sculpture in the Tarot Garden.
