Leaves in the Woods – Monochrome Madness


This week I decided to try and step out of the box a bit.  I really love trying new things and I’m starting to see which direction I’d like to go with photography which is more out of the box than straight-up photography.  I like to push boundaries and see what I come up with.  Hmm…I guess nothing’s changed since I was a teenager LOL!

The entire challenge can be found later on Leanne Cole’s Site “Monochrome Madness”  so please check it out.

  28. Instead of monochrome ‘madness’ we can call this ‘monochrome wisdom’. Everyone else already said it all. I concur.
    It is called – I think – a panel when there are more than three parts.

    • Thank you Vera….there really is so much wisdom in all the photographs entered each week. I am constantly learning from them. Thank you for liking my panel. 🙂
