Obviously, you have been looking at this more closely than I have.
The two diagrams could have been drawn similarly if the top and bottom diode circuits were swapped in either drawing. It makes no difference, chalk it up to artistic license. I am sure that you realize that the diodes on the right are Light Emitting, while the diodes on the left are just diodes.
