"Leading lines" attract attention by literally leading your eye through a photograph. The line could be straight or somewhat curved but you will look at that line to guide you to an interesting point in the photograph. Many things can be depicted as showing leading lines, including a row of buildings, a shoreline, a road, railroad tracks, tree branches, and more. For this challenge, it was specifically mentioned that participants take pictures of anything but railroad tracks.
Here are a series of "leading line" photographs, taken at various times in Grand Island and in Buffalo.
