Monday 10 March 2014: MONOMONDAY: Architecture
This is a super wide angled glimpse of Blackheath's wonderful Presbyterian Church. Completed in 1925, the building is interesting because, despite its late date, the design still shows elements of Gothic Revival architecture through such features as the leadlight windows, ornamental pinnacles and false buttresses.
In monochrome it does look a bit forbidding and so I couldn't resist "going the whole hog". I have tried to add something of a nightmare quality to the image by boosting the contrast and adding a little glow. Despite the fact that it was actually a nice clear morning, the sunrise was behind the church and I was able to add a hint of some gloomy clouds.
Today is the "MONOMONDAY: Architecture" challenge. I am hoping that lots of you will do an architecturally related blip, rendered in monochrome. Once your image is posted, just comment on this journal entry, quoting "MONOMONDAY: Architecture" and I shall post a link to your blip, later today. For the reasons explained last week, I won't be checking for tags. Please try to visit the other participants. You'll be glad that you did. Come 5:00 pm Tuesday, Sydney time, the challenge (for this week) will officially end. It would be great if you could save a heart for the featured image you like the best.
Next week's theme will be MONOMONDAY: Water
Here are this week's participants
What a wonderful challenge. I could have awarded hearts to 20 or more of your images and I am really sorry that I could not do exactly that. After much soul searching my hearts for MONOMONDAY: Architecture go to:
