However,they do say it is best to have an odd number in your images.
You have an even number here !!

Guess you've been screwed Bill. Good one.

Today is a bit up and down. We will be in attendance at some point but I'm only the taxi driver.....sister in law problems.

You do rust very well.......Steve Grin
What to do with old screws in this kind of numbers?

Mick always has a fun answer and logical too at times.

Once again, thumbnails can be deceptive. I thought this was a shot of a pile of fage ends until I opened it up. A shot of fag ends would have been just as effective, mind you. But this is superbly abstract, and very well observed.

nice texture and mass

A truly great study - and as someone mentioned, what a super jigsaw it would make!

Nice shot Bill, good colours with nice detail, I din't know about fag ends, to me they look like sweets and this is good enough to eat. good spot Bill well presented.

This would be smashing in a frame Bill, I'm sure Mick would love it on His Dinning Room Wall.

I'd love to see this as a picture puzzle -- would occupy kids forever on a rainy day.

PS I know kids don't do puzzles that aren't on a digital device. I guess what I meant was -- would occupy me and a few good friends with a pint or two on a rainy day.
