Carmi, over at writteninc. has given us the title of "Straight Lines" for his challenge this week.   I thought perhaps he had it made over in Toronto, where buildings and that have a lot of straight lines, by necessity!   But I took my camera in the park and found a surprising amount of straight lines there!   Plus a few from my archives, (sorry if you have seen them before!) and I am really on the straight and narrow this week! ;)

The Council have mended this seat in the park, but a coat of paint would  make it look better!

Rusty straight railings, withj straight iris leaves and bullrush leaves in the background!

One of the bunkers on the Pitch and Putt course.   its just outside our garden gate.

Looking up inside a pylon!

Actually in the park again - the security door against the store and office.

Stacked chairs outside a cafe, at the Country Park at Tittesworth Reservoir, Staffordshire.

Do go to the link above to see more Straight Lines - and do leave a note to say you have been here!

My bench! Hehehe! I love it, all great straight lines, the last one is really interesting too!

I love the stack of chairs. Great set of straight lines.

Nice pics, but I must say...You have a pitch and putt outside your garden gate?

Gilly, nice collection of straight lines. Like the weathered green bench. Thanks for sharing.

I could use that bench sometimes but with a pitch and putt outside my door I doubt that I would get much further.

Very pleasing, Gilly. Straight lines are so much more interesting than they sound! Lesley x

LOVE the security door shot!

As always, you've covered the bases, Gilly, and then some. I love how so many of your subjects have withstood the test of time, and seem to wear the years with pride. Great texture, and great geometry. The pylon shot made me a little dizzy...in a good way.

I think you'll like the new theme. Just posted it!
