Marilyn, I found it interesting how all of your photos between Walter's falls and the giant spools have such strong diagonals! Did you notice? I particularly like this one as the line follows first the chain, then the rock and finally what appears to be a rusty post. You have some fantastic new pictures and I am enjoying them very much.

Oh, and Happy Canada day !

Thanks for your observation, Vicki. There's much talk about the "rule of thirds," and some about "S-curves," but relatively little about diagonals, it seems to me. Very often when I'm faced with a "straight line" situation, I hunt diagonals. I just do it pretty much without thinking, and then notice it afterwards!

I hope you're having a pleasant Canada Day. I've posted two small reminders of the festivities.

Cheers, Marilyn
