INFORMATION AND REQUESTS

INFORMATION AND REQUESTS.

Each week this blog will publish on Friday at 6pm Irish time. Mister Linky will remain open until 8am on Monday.

PLEASE LINK DIRECTLY to your monochrome post. If your link leads to your home page it makes it very difficult for anyone trying to visit after a few days.

PLEASE don't hide your photo(s) in a whole string of entries for other memes - it's hard for all concerned.


PLEASE post ONLY BLACK AND WHITE photos - no patches of colour and no sepia or other colour treatments however good they may look. A black and white photo with added colour will lead to REMOVAL OF THE LINK. This challenge is ONLY for black and white photographs.

Friday 25th June 2010.

Welcome to the new home for monochrome maniacs.

I've imported all the posts from Aileni's Monochrome Weekly blog, so you'll be able to look back at old favourites.
(Edited to explain that the imported posts have vanished. Sorry!)

As ever, the copyright of these photos remains with the photographers. Clicking on the picture will take you to their post.

I hope you'll like it here.

Great choices for the features this week and thank you so much for keeping this going for all of us Dragonstar.

It is very nice to see that this very special meme (my favourite) is continuing under very competent new management. I hope that the old management is also doing very well and I wish both of you all the best.

Hi,
I'm new to the Black&White weekend.
Your photos are just amazing!

T. Becque said...

Yes, nice job and thank you!

Lovely as always. But, as a newby here, how are photos chosen, and what are the themes?

Dragonstar said...

@ 13 Stoploss:
Aileni started this theme as a reason for people to post their B&W photos. He hoped that it might encourage beginners to improve their photographic vision and technique. No weekly subject was considered at that time.
The whole idea took off much more rapidly than anyone expected - there seems to be a great love of good black and white photography.
The featured photos each week were chosen purely because he liked them, and I'm continuing with that. They do need to have 'something' going for them - fuzzy, murky, shapeless photos don't appeal!
Does that help?

Perry said...

Dragonstar,

Please do not visit my blog again. Being critical without providing constructive feedback is just mean. Never happened when Aileni was running the place. I'll not be back.

Ann said...

Thank you for continuing with the theme, Dragonstar, and thank you Aileni, I have learned so much about working with b&w since I found the site. Also, thank you for choosing one of my shots.

Larry D said...
