Ballyboggan Abbey – Monochrome Madness Challenge

Ballyboggan Abbey

This weeks image for the Monochrome Challenge comes from the ruins of the Augustinian Priory of De Laude Dei also known as Ballyboggan Abbey. Another one of the many sites I came across by pure chance, after spotting a sign for a graveyard from the roadside. It was built back in the early 12th century and has a long interesting history. You can read more about it and see the full series of images by clicking HERE.

The rest of this week’s images for the Monochrome Madness Challenge will go live on Leanne Cole’s blog later today. Each week there is a vast collection of contributors from around the world with some fantastic Black and White Photography.  I highly recommend that you head on over to where you can either contribute your own B&W images or view the images from this week’s challenge.

For these and more of my images, why not visit my Website or join me on Facebook or Twitter.

    Great picture. That building has such presence and authority, but thats probably down to the way you shot it. Very imposing…

    Love it, Ed! It’s got a slight brooding feeling to it; you know me, always describing the, ‘feelings’ of things! *grin* Cher xo

    • Thats what its all about Cher 🙂

        Thank you, Ed! I know you have a lot of followers who are technically, ‘in the know’ which clearly I am not! I’ll just keep commenting about the feelings!! 🙂 🙂 cher xo

        • Yeah, I’m not big into the tech side of stuff, I’m more into the atmosphere or (feeling) in a shot. Take for instance the shot of the Casino I did last week, Technically is was slatted by some as a bad architectural shot. But that wasn’t its purpose!
          But enough people saw what I was trying to portray so its all good 🙂

            Well that makes me “feel” better! Your work is so thought-provoking, so awe-inspiring, and I honestly think you have an incredibly special gift to capture the feelings and stirrings of emotions in a category all of your own, Ed. Cher xo

  4. Good to see you are still in the challenge. Nice offering.

    Your monochrome images are always great, Ed. The ruin itself is captivating, but the clouds and the angle really add to the image.
