Hi Steve, yes I understand the rationale for including the leads. They have
featured in many of your pics in this spot. In this one I thought that there
was not enough technology for its meaning to be apparent, hence I might have
avoided them or included more to emphasize the medical setting. I hadn't
thought of a parallel to the girls' braids, interesting idea.

no ! no !  the leads give this couleur locale, and provide a certain  
humerous interplay with the girls and their braids...
