Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #228 – diagonals

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #228, we’re exploring the power of diagonals.

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.

New Edits – Sunset

Back to the archives, this is an old sunset photo I discovered when searching for shots that I’ve disregarded, now after editing , not so shabby.

Before sunset

I was in Vancouver, visiting my sister who is terminally ill, it has been emotionally hard visit. Due to that my blogging has been non existant.

The mountains around the area are so beautiful and looking at the natures beauty has calming effect which helped. These mountains and sea – aah, so lovely prior sunset.
