Broken rank

Breaking ranks in the corps de ballet.

I took this photo nearly fifty years ago during a rehearsal at Covent Garden, and the negative is as pristine today as it was all those years ago. In response to Cheri inviting us to “find beauty in something broken” for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken.

A Year of Monochrome Madness

A year ago Leanne Cole and Laura Macky invited photographers to submit their monochrome images each week, which were then posted as a gallery by Leanne on her blog. For this 52nd week Leanne suggested we all post a gallery of some of our favourites.

I would like to thank Leanne and Laura for hosting this great project over the past year, and congratulate all the contributors for so many memorable and inspiring images.


For this special Christmas Edition of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness, the last of the year, we are all adding a splash of colour.  To see all the great submissions visit Leanne’s blog and enjoy a wonderful potpourri of great images, all with a touch of colour.

Best wishes for the holidays everyone, and thanks Leanne 🙂
