Monochromatic

A monochromatic image is composed of a gradient of a single colour, and has an emphasis on texture and composition. Whilst this sculpture in Canberra is not entirely monochromatic it does demonstrate the power of a simple colour scheme and shape and form.

Heyjude

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. That sculpture looks so different in that light Jude, it was a bright sunny day and no ground reflections in my photo. Well seen and an interesting take on the challenge

    1. Only goes to prove the point that varying your angle on a subject can alter the impact of the photograph. I’m much more conscious of that now than I used to be.
