I thik I must have diagonal eyes…I found so many diagonals in my archive!
First up, diagonals of desertedness, desolation and abandonment:
Now for architectural and sculptural:
And finally, something floral:

Yep, you get the star prize for diagonal eyes. My favourite is the cloisters but I’m partial to them. Like that second from last too.
Pleased you liked these, Jo! Like you, I love a good cloister, so I had to include that!
You have some lovely black and white photos Sue.
Many thanks, Jude!
Great picks for diagonals, but they are one of the elements that is often to be the base for a photo.
Indeed they are, leading our eyes!
Definitely diagonal eyes, or at least eyes for a good diagonal 😀 I like the way you’ve themed your galleries but in the end my favourite is the lone floral!
Yay! I was pleased with that tulip!
I’ve been the privileged viewer of most of these shots: all absolutely on-topic. In a crowded field, I rathe like the terraced field: a bit different, this one. Talking of topics. Have you chosen one yet?
Pleased you like my field in old Lucania! As for topics, no, time I got a wiggle on….
You sound like Jo!
desertedness, desolation and abandonment … invited me to stay and story. Thanks Sue
Thank you, Brenda!
Great selections. We humans leave our abandoned stuff EVERYWHERE. Love that strange building with the diagonal ‘lightning rod’ thingy. Different!
Oh, the lightning rod thingy was seeen fro a coach in Copenhagen…
Good choices, Sue. You definitely spot diagonal opportunities.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete! Diagonals are great leading lines
Wow, great collection!
Thank you, Dawn!
Sue, your diagonal gallery of photos is delightful. I was fun scrolling through them.
Good! Thanks, Cee
Well Sue, of course I loved them all, a beautiful collection. (somehow it made me think of Harry Potter again “diagonal-eyes” (or was that Betty Davis eyes?) But I digress. Your closing image of the flower on white background is absolutely stunning and stole my heart on this one.
Thank you, Tina, much appreciated!
An excellent gallery.
Beautiful gallery, Sue. I especially love your first set. Stunning shots of deserted, abandoned, and forlorn places. Where did you find them? Same country? Or different? Great use of diagonals here.
Thanks, Patti…these span 4 decades and some from England, Wales, France and Italy!
lovely collection. I especially loved the ruins with the person in the lower left, and the dark doorway with the arches. Very nice.
Many thanks! Pleased you liked them
