Sunset: almost looks like camera flash, doesn’t it?

Its my pleasure to introduce Sherry Galey as a new guest contributor to Monochromia. Some of you might already be familiar with her work on our sister group Life in Black & White on Facebook. I hope you will enjoy her work as much as I do.

For the last five years, this is how we spent our winters, on a 36-foot sailboat cruising between Florida and the Bahamas. It was bliss, but now that we’ve sold the boat, all I have are my memories…and my images. Now I will be spending all seasons in a small town just outside of Canada’s capital, Ottawa.

I’m delighted to make my debut as a guest contributor to this wonderful site and join a group of passionate and talented black and white photographers.

It was my father who first instilled in me a love of black and white photography way back in the sixties. He made the most beautiful images with his Rollieflex, many of which I still have and cherish. He never saw my black and whites, but I think he would like them.

Two Of Us

Black And White Photography, Emilio, Photography


I swear I don’t remember taking this shot. So I can’t tell you where we were. I would guess somewhere on Planet Earth as I don’t think we’ve travelled much further than that lately. And I don’t know if it’s too dark or not as I processed it on my laptop and every time you move, the exposure seems to change. So if it’s too dark- or light- for you, let me know.

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone’s
Hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home.
Lennon and McCartney

Racing Shadows

Black And White Photography, Photography, samobiker, Wade


Racers in the Bone Machine Crit race against each other and the setting sun in Portland OR.  Unlike most bikes you see on the road these are fixed gear bikes meaning that there are no gears, coasting or brakes.  You have to slow the pedals down to slow the bike down.  Imagine riding around a tight course with 70 other spandex clad racers at 25-30 mph for an hour.   The setting sun made things even more dramatic.  You can see more images from the race over on
