Round Robin Photo Challenge: The Right Angle

Robins are out with a new Photo Challenge. The subject for this one is : Right Angle.
 We must photograph anything that has one or more right angles in its design: squares, rectangles, right isosceles triangles, etc. The first three pictures on this post are all part of my archives, old pictures taken during my travels around Italy. The last two are new pictures taken at home.

 Parma Cathedral  - Italy.
The  doors of the west Portal are elaborately decorated with perfect square bas-reliefs

 A (right isosceles triangle ) Tympanum at Cinque Terre - Italy
The Cinque Terre is a strip of land, less than 20 km in lenght, it comprises five small fishing villages between sea and mountains in the Northwestern region of Liguria. These five small fishing villages, set like jewels into the Ligurian Coast (Costa Ligure of Levante) give the name to this area (the translation of "Cinque Terre" is "Five Lands").

A rectangular air or light shaft In Mantua - Italy. 

To end my choice of right angles... these  wooden construction blocks 
were stored away among my son's old toys and I chose to photograph these with right angles.

 Forgive my childish behaviour but I couldn't resist the temptation of playing around with them.


Now that you've seen my choice of right angle challenge pictures, please take a look
at the other entries in this challenge. 
You can find the blog links at the Round Robin Photo Challenge Blog.
Thank you!


  1. I love that door in the first photo, so beautiful!

  2. These are absolutely wonderful! Sorry it took me so long to come by and enjoy them! I love the - forgive me - angles on all of these, espectially the third and fourth ones down. Well done!


Please leave a comment, I would love to know what you think.
Thank you!
