LAPC #228: Diagonals

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:

Linked to Lens artists at Patti’s here



  1. 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.

  2. You have some lovely black and white photos Sue.

  3. Great picks for diagonals, but they are one of the elements that is often to be the base for a photo.

  4. 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!

  5. 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?

  6. desertedness, desolation and abandonment … invited me to stay and story. Thanks Sue

  7. Great selections. We humans leave our abandoned stuff EVERYWHERE. Love that strange building with the diagonal ‘lightning rod’ thingy. Different!

  8. Good choices, Sue. You definitely spot diagonal opportunities.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  9. Sue, your diagonal gallery of photos is delightful. I was fun scrolling through them.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. lovely collection. I especially loved the ruins with the person in the lower left, and the dark doorway with the arches. Very nice.
