This week Patti challenges us to Diagonal Lines. Here is Patti’s Post.
When I think of leading lines, I don’t often think of them as diagonal lines, but they can be an effective way to lead the viewer to the subject of the photo. According to format.com, “When you want to provide a sense of change, motion, or direction, a diagonal line is a wonderful option. Most often, diagonal lines are visually followed from foreground to background, left to right, so in these cases your subject should be either at the start or end of your line to maximize impact. It should also be noted that, with diagonal lines, the direction the lines move can also affect visual effect.”
I searched my archives to see where I have used diagonal lines.
This challenge proves to me, I need to start looking for diagonal lines more often. They really can provide impact in you photo!

The frog providing an opposite diagonal is so wonderful: it arrests your eye as it travels along the long diagonal
These are wonderful choices Sarah – I loved them all. The cathedral and the palace in Spain are amazing.
Thank you Tina!! Spain was such an amazing place!
These are all wonderful – the cathedral ceiling is quite beautiful
Thank you Nora!!
What a fantastic collection, Sarah. I loved them all! That little frog provides a great visual contrast and I love the story that the piano tells. Your images in Spain are terrific!
Thank you so much Patti!!
GREAT diagonals, all. LOVE the derelict piano.

I don’t have a favorite this week. I love them all! The angle of the Eiffel Tower, the trivia at Alcazar, the And what a treasure to have found the old piano. But the lizard of the wall, on point…or I guess this week on diagonal.
