These aren’t what I typically think of when I think of the concept of leading lines in photographs. When I started to photograph the last stalks of alstroemeria, still clinging to life after a week in the vase, I did not have Ailsa’s challenge in mind (Ailsa, Where’s My BackPack, Travel Theme: Leading Lines). But, once I downloaded this particular image, I could help but play with the orientation, the saturation and the color. No alstroemeria were injured in the making of these images!

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them.
