Monochrome

Over at Writteninc Carmi has taken to posting a photo theme for the week. This week's theme is monochrome.

Even though things still grow in New Zealand in winter, it seems an appropriate season for monochrome photos. Rain, bare trees, dark clouds.... yes, there is green grass (greener in winter than summer, even), and green trees, since most New Zealand natives are evergreen, but there is plenty of monochrome too.

I was about to capture a bare tree silhouetted against the sky from the supermarket carpark, when I caught sight of these trolleys. They looked a little forlorn in the rain. There wasn't too much colour in the picture, and Photoshop took care of the rest.

Excellent monochrome picture. It looks so chilly. Much more unique than the tree would have been, too. You have a great eye.

Funny - when I saw the photo I actually thought they were getting ready to dance. You have sexy looking carts in NZ. Have you seen what we suffer with in Boston? The tree would have been lovely, but I don't know if I would have felt like dancing

I never would have thought of taking a picture of grocery carts (Oh, I mean trollies! That's a way better name). It's a really cool shot!
