  7. Ok this is getting to be a bit of a theme ’cause all you pics remind me of things that they are obviously not – these look like the squashed bristles of a toilet brush, you know if you squashed the head flat. It is a great photo and I really hope it doesn’t offend but my brain is a little odd (even to me) at times.
