Most people think of monochrome photography as being solely black and white, but the definition also includes photos containing varying tones of one colour. After browsing through a monochrome photography exhibit earlier this week, I went looking through my travel shots for photos containing one predominant colour. It turned out to be a lot of fun and I was surprised at how many shots I’ve taken that have one main colour. Here are the red halls of Seattle’s Central Library.
Getting artsy with raindrops on leaves at the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island.
Sizzling hot California sunset just south of the Oregon border.
Pearly white M&M overload at the flagship store in Manhattan.
Fluffy pink cherry blossom season in Seattle.
It’s hard to find a Holi photo with just one colour in it, but this is the closest I got to monochrome in this frenzy of colour.
So do you think you can limit yourself to only one colour? If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: One Colour
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
