Saturday Photohunt—Monochrome

Some people think that monochrome has to be black & white or grayscale. If you truly know about color, you'll know that true black or registration black is made up of 100% of the 4 colors, CMYK—cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Enough art production lessons. If you want more, you're gonna have to pay green (mixture of cyan and yellow) papers for it.

It just so happens that TW's terrible photography tends to look better in monochrone. Since I'm a DJ, I've chosen to redo this cover by the band The Monochrome Set in shades of magenta.


The next example is grayscale.


And finally, this last example is only monochromatic because the online program I used said it is. It's actually a Pantone color so I guess technically it's only one color although if that color was processed, it'd probably be a mixture of CMYK. Still, it's a picture of me so it looks good any which way but blurry.

  17. My darling CK, Let me avail myself of the 30 seconds granted me by The Sick One to say that indeed the tale of the DISHES was a hilarious and entertaining diversion. Honestly, do you think they might do that ALL THE TIME when you're not paying attention???

    Your monochromatic self looks quite delightful.

    We hope, someday, that we'll be back to normal over here, but so far Sunday has not been the day! XOXOXO
