i dont have a problem with the lines, infact i love using lines a lot, i find that lots of things in life connect, it is infact the essence of life. to connect. we connect every day, our brain work in a hierachy of information collection and connection.. but anyway here to me it seems quite obvious to me that the lines are there to show the connection of the relationship? i cant see them any other way so i dont get how other people dont get it. but bah to critique discouraged! i always critique anyway because behind every picture there is a connection, purposefully or not.
