It is said that everybody has an angle, so this week I’ve decided to play the angles and see what travel shots I came up with. First up, appropriate for the day that’s in it, some elegant, peaceful, reflective angles from the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in Manhattan.
A sassy little triangular restroom at the start of the trail up Sauk Mountain.
A dreamy blue geometric pool at Hearst Castle in California. I want a backyard like theirs.
Last, but not least, a symphony of angles at Seattle’s unbelievably beautiful Central Library.
Have you got your own angle on this week’s theme? If you would like to join in with your own interpretation of this week’s theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

In writing, one searches, and that is what keeps one writing, that one sees and experiences things from another angle entirely; one experiences oneself during the process of writing. – Herta Müller
There is some level on which this life must occasionally become repugnant and unappetizing to you and you must step back from it. And then you have a new relationship with it, and then you step back into it from a different angle – with a new appetite – and then you find the next leg of your journey. – John Patrick Shanley
I’m all for the cuddly curves in life… so it will be difficult for me to find the exact spot where the straight lines cross!! 😈
Haha, I can always count on you to throw a curve ball, AJ 🙂
Only trying to flatten out the curves a tad!! 😉

Again an original theme, Ailsa! And as much as I adore that first photo, I would love to dive into the pool of heaven. Awesome photos.
Here’s my angle on angles: https://wheresmybackpack.com/2015/09/11/travel-theme-angles/
Argh, noooo, this is the correct url lol: https://drieskewrites.wordpress.com/2015/09/11/travel-theme-angles/
Fabulous photos, Marion, the one listed as 150911Angles is my favourite, it could double for modern art. 🙂

The photo of the pool at the 911 brings back strong memories, Ailsa.
The incredible ruins of UNESCO World Heritage Site of Chan Chan in Peru are full of angles: https://jaspasjourney.wordpress.com/2015/09/11/chan-chan-peru-the-worlds-greatest-adobe-city/
Stunning, I just love how form and function combine into something so beautiful. Those audience chambers and the walking pelicans, breathtaking! xxx
I’m also amazed by how delicate it all is, too. Although Chan Chan is a ruin and shadow of its former self, in any other climate it wouldn’t have survived at all.

Angles as far as the eye can see… http://windagainstcurrent.com/2015/09/11/angles/
Wonderful shots, Vlad, I often forget quite how busy New York Harbor really is! 🙂
Love the John Patrick Shanley quote, Ailsa. You’ve got me thinking this week!
It’s one of those quotes that stays with you long after you’ve read it, Jill. 🙂

Fun and bringing on much of architecture I guess! Have a great weekend!
Some very dramatic angles there, Leya, lovely photos. Hope you have a great weekend too. xxx
Nice potos Ailsa! Can’t wait to see Seattle’s Public Library, only 3.5 weeks to go and we will be there! If not for you, I would not have known about it, perhaps after we got there, but not before so that I could anticipate it. We’ve used your blog as a valuable tool to peruse the various Seattle options. Thank you so much!
Ooh, I bet you’ll love the library. Say hello to Seattle for me when you’re there, one of my favourite spots on the planet. Drink lots of really good coffee at cute coffee shops (Cafe Vita, Ladro, Vivace and Victrola for starters) and definitely play with the Sonic Bloom flowers at Seattle Center. xxx
Ha, didn’t even notice ’til you pointed it out. 🙂
Fun shots, love the Jumel Terrace one! 🙂
