Monochrome Weekend.

I'm sorry I didn't get to visit you all last week, but I hope to do better this week!

This is the exhaust of my son's motorbike after a shower of rain.

Visit the Monochrome pages for a wide variety of excellent photographs.

An enjoyable surface of shiny chrome and water drops, with reflections beneath - including your "self-portrait"!

Good to be able to see your hand on the left, DS. It takes a photographic eye to be able to "see" the potential in the world around us that can be turned into an image that "works" - especially in monochrome. Nice shot.

That's a great shot. I love how shiny it is and how clear the water droplets are.

This is a great shot. Your reflection makes it look like you have a splitting headache ;-)

It's Chinese New year or rather Lunar new year, I am teaching children about the dragon which is part of the Chinese folk tales. The kids have imagination of what their dragon look like. One even have a duck's head.

Fantastic shot. I love the reflections in the crome. The water droplets look like hollows.

D-star! this is fantastic! with so much appeal for everyone. I love the curve and the reflective aspect and of course, the sheer capture of POWER!
