We were invited to join this week to explore diagonals as a way to add visual interest and depth to our photos, as well as a sense of action. What diagonals can you find was asked?
Lets have a look at what I can find in a form of leading lines, I try to use them often to lead your way to something. Cityscapes are easy place to find them. They can lead your eye, frame the scene.
Did I find them, I had to stop lookng for them as I once again have an overload of them. Sorry…and as this is mainly a photography blog I will not go into details of the locations, I would not remember even if I tried. Diagonals you will find 🙂 Sit down and enjoy the scene’s as the header suggests.

I am rather happy with this first capture of a Sacred Ibis, I saw In Sydney, Australia at our visit there: I named this post first, A Stork, it is in fact a Sacred Ibis I was kindly informed. So correction is in order.
Editing Black and White images is fun, I have a limited amount of photos of public transportation’s but I did find few for CB&W theme this week.
Trams seem to be my favorite public transportation to photograph. So there are trams from Helsinki, San Francisco, Melbourne. Buses and metro from Hong Kong. Ferry from Sydney and Hong Kong. Last but not least a train from Melbourne. I did actually find several as I started to look through my archives. Happy travels in public transportation.
I am still in the city of Sydney. the Sydney Opera House looked better in my opinion in the dark with lights on. Oddly enough I was not the only one taking photos of it 🙂 I tried to find different angles when taking the photos.
I like the shots with the boats best… Obviously the top one with the sail boat is my favorite.
We at a restaurant called China Lane Restaurant- style Asian fusion. Absolutely delicious. My cousin knew the place and did the ordering for us, so I do not remember what we ate but it was one of the best meals we had in a long time. Recommendation to the place , absolutely
We were greeted in Sydney with this happy dude called Doug and kids of Leo entertaining the crowd by singing. So here are few street photos from George street. I was sitting on a bench as this little kid slept in his dads arms while mom was doing Xmas shopping. The pretty lady across the street just caught my eye.
It has been a while since I updated anything. I had a lovely trip to Australia, I took so, so, so many photos that I don’t know what to do with them. Editing and trying to post them in some kind of order… I’m stuck, but here is one as I do have to start somewhere. We visited Sydney and had a look Queen Victoria Building . Rather beautiful shopping center. Amazing thing is, I did not buy anything.
We made it here, days have been so busy and long that the idea of doing a post did not even cross my mind. Here are some shots . I will be posting better quality photos when I m back home. here are few shots from Sydney
