Nothing encourages creativity like the chance to fall flat on one's face. (Explore)

Monochromatic Month is now over! To all of you who chose to spend a portion of your April with me, thank you so much. I know it wasn't easy to set aside the vibrant colors of Spring, especially when Mother Nature was putting on her most colorful best throughout the month. But you all willingly accepted the challenge to convey the same warmth, expressiveness and appeal using only monochromatic tones—and not only did you succeed, but in the process you produced some of the most timeless, artistic and dramatic shots on Flickr. Congrats and thank you! :)
