Monday Mono

Its Monday let me do another Mono post

On Mondays I have bene sharing some mono edit spf photos and I will continue with that habit today, Plus I will counter some comments which say I always take amazing photos, trust me I often mess up and take bad photos, I just generally do not share them.
But lewt me start with a photo that looked pretty good in color, but I felt it would look even better with a mono edit.
this shot is one the bridge from Popes Island heading to Fairhaven, but looking back towards the island and New Bedford.
As you know I moved here last June and wasn't sure what I would think of the city I had visited here many times as the family and grandkids live here, but hadnt really explored it to much, and had heard bad things about it being so rough in some areas.
well I will admit I love it here, so many beautiful spots for walks, a lot of interesting history and of course I get well we get to spend a lot more time with the family and grandkids

THis next shot is down by the docks, I walked onto one of the piers and looked back at the ramp back up and took this shot, in color its not really that eye catching but I thought i would try it with mono and I was quite happy how it came out.

Now this next shot relates to show I do not always take greta shots, I have many that I mess up, in this case I moved the camera and tripod befor the long exposure finished, and it really is a mediocre shot, but I decided to go with a mono edit and share it with this post to show yes I do mess up with taking photos, I just generally do not edit and share them

And back on Popes Island for this next shot, I have a similar photo I edited in color and used in a post but I thought it also worked well in Mono

And another shot that didnt come out as planned I went for a walk through the cemetery recently with the Vintage Helios 44-2 lens and I guess I just wasn't focused ( sorry bad photography un there) or paying attention to what I was doing as the photos were all pretty back, this was the best of a bad bunch

Very cool and creative shots, the mono fits them nicely :)

@tipu curate

Thank you have a good day

I don't believe that you ever take bad shots, either; that one that you've shown is just proof of ghosts and orbs. 😂

That first shot in sepia is pretty great and definitely evokes a feeling of nostalgia and adventure.

LOl I do trust me, I just dont want to do a post to prove it with my really bad shots

Stunning, imposing effect ! ❤️
Fantastic shots and angle. Great work my dear friend @tattoodjay. God bless you.

Thanks so much
Have a great day

Back in time with the first shot and I think that third shot is the best.
Maybe you must move the tripod more often JJ 😄

And of course the angel is also great.

Thanks my friend
Lol yes moving the tripod can mess the shot you want but sometimes makes a funky result

I saw that and it turned out to be great shot JJ.


Hey @tattoodjay, here is a little bit of BEER from @papilloncharity for you. Enjoy it!

Of course, I like the first shot, it is so old-timey looking to me, but, the shot of the Chesapeake and her mast - I really love that one. It doesn't have the scenic beauty of the others, but, it speaks to me in its simplicity.

Mono is really cool if you can grasp it like you do. I still have difficulty figuring out what works with it, but, I know it is just something that comes with practice. I hate to say it, but, I like the angel and I know you could have fixed it. :P

Have a great day! Oh! I loved the 3rd picture! Haha! I looked like something I may be able to do!

Thanks for your feedback

The angel is very close to home an easy walk so no doubt I will get new shots of it one day

I like even the messed up shot - if you said that you did it on purpose I might believe it. The lights look somehow cool 😃

The angel wouldn't look any good in colour I believe - you have done a great job converting it to mono.

!BEER and !WINE and !PIZZA - perfect 😃

Thanks so much my friend

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

Most welcome JJ 😀

!BEER and !PIZZA - nice 😃

Hey @tattoodjay, here is a little bit of BEER from @investinthefutur for you. Enjoy it!

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

You've shown me parts of my own country I know very little about. The northeast coast the place I've seen the least of in the USA.

And I am sure you have seen so many places in the states I have never been to
But that said I do love New England

you're just too awesome with nature 😍😍😍 do you do it ??...please i wish to be an apprentice in your photography course and how you edit is out of these doubt you're the best thus far....please am open to learning🤗🙌✌👌🏻

I give tips now and again in posts but feel free to ask questions anytime

Thanks kindly

I think if you had said that you looked for all the effects when taking the photos, we would all have believed you

That’s quite possibly true but I like to be honest

the 1st photo should have more unreal text, not Bedford, but something as fantastic as the photo itself.
Like colour effect very much!

Thanks for the feedback a good point fir sure

I couldn't find words to describe these photos, especially the second one. Amazing! Always looking forward to your photos. :)

Thanks that is so kind of you and truly appreciated

have a great day

Nice. Black White.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

ok ok ok.... now lets see how well you know me hehehehe

which one do you think is my favorite!!! (and it has nothing to do with the position in the post hahahaha)

now i want to see how well you know me LOLOLOL

Hmmm this is a tough one, I am thinking it may be , OK let me increase my chances and narrow it down to two

The funky one with the moving lights is the first one I think you would pick, but closely followed by the looking up the ramp

HE KNOWS ME!!!!!!!!!

hahahahahhahahahaha yep!!!! You guessed right!!! The funky one for sure hahahahaha

#twinsforever lollol

Lol I breathe a sigh of relief now

Hahahahhahahahahhaa were in danger of losing your twin status!!!!!

Hahahhahahaa just kidding!!!

that status.shall never move. Hehe

Phew that’s good to know
