These are small rubber cups used for polishing teeth when you go to a dental office.
By making this a contest, I thought it would be an interesting way to get people to really spend some time looking at my picture and fun for me to see the reaction. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks to everyone who took a guess or commented on my picture. Iím sorry that nobody was able to guess the correct answer. Judging from the score, I guess it wasnít a very good picture so I am probably somewhat to blame. Either that or you all are not making it in to your friendly dentist to get your teeth cleaned at least twice a year as you should! I hope everyone took this little exercise in the manner in which it was intended. That was, to have some fun and get people to look just a little longer at my picture. In the spirit of good will, for all those who did comment, please email to me your address and I will send you a free (unused) toothbrush! Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to comment and play the game.:)

Well if your paying out, I thinks its a sole of a shoe, good clean shot, with interesting shapes

Looks like the suction cups on the bottom of a bath mat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a pretty crap photo but a fun sub-challenge! ;)

Shot is noisy and rough looking and the objects are unaesthetic to me. Bet you get loads of responses though. I'm not guessing 'coz I'm chicken - and I won't be the first!

They're the bottoms of markers...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2003 02:41:31 AM
Looks kinda like the hubs of audio cassette tapes, but I don't think that's quite it ....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2003 04:42:36 PM
I think it is the bottom of a anti-slip bath mat (check //www.floormat.com/safetybath.html) :). While there are plenty of shapes, the photo itself isn't that appealing. You could have made this picture more interesting by using a different light or POV.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2003 03:46:10 PM
I would say knobs of some sort. Nice designs
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2003 09:20:00 AM
It's obvious ... they're overexposed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2003 05:37:31 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2003 10:27:09 PM
I think it looks like the tread pattern on the sole of a running shoe?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2003 09:19:22 PM
upside down appliance knobs

12/09/2003 02:21:35 PM
Markers?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2003 05:57:59 AM
I'm definitely not going to win anything on guessing what these are! They look like some kind of button to me. An interesting, visually engaging shot, and I like the black and white, though I tend to like a wider tonal range. I think a different lighting angle, creating some interesting darker tones would make a more powerful composition.

Minus 3 points because I had to read the Title 10 times and still don't understand it. :p LOL.

I have no idea what these things are. :) I was going to say cake decorating tips but I know that's wrong.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 09:51:13 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.

bottom of a shoe...rubber sole.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 08:41:55 PM
They look like the things we use to plug the bathtub or the sink and fill it with water :) Nice idea for getting people to stop and look tho!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 06:48:25 PM
bottom of shoes?

They look like the little windy things in cassette tapes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 06:07:11 PM
the sole of a shoe perhaps? Although that'd be one weird shoe.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My Guess: Molds for Matchbox Car Wheels?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 03:13:10 PM
maybe it's the tread surface of a shoe.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 02:23:39 PM

12/08/2003 09:55:57 AM
Are they lego pieces? Clever..clever. Great way to encourage comments!! I wonder what a different background color would look like.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 09:50:51 AM
Bean bag ashtrays? An interesting pattern shot with interesting shapes. Black and white works well, and the high key adds to the effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 09:08:32 AM
these are the thingies you supposed to put pairs of socks thru to keep them organized, right?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 08:39:26 AM
Ok -I'll guess. The rolls that are in a cassette tape. And your picture is good but it seems a little over exposed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 07:39:46 AM
are they rooks from a chess set
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 07:16:54 AM
Is it the bottom of a sneaker? Cool idea. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 07:03:56 AM
Hot rollers? Look a lot like some I used to have. Interesting monochromatic shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 06:50:25 AM
Great Pic, looks like some type of styrofoam packing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 04:37:49 AM
bottles of tipex?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 12:55:01 AM
Very interesting, I like the white on white...my guess is that it is the bottom of a tennis shoe. Am I even close?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 12:48:13 AM
some kind of treading... i'm tossed between sneaker sole and bike tire.

i'm going with bike tire.

nice macro!

12/08/2003 12:35:33 AM
Spools of thread?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2003 12:10:59 AM
Very funny. Now we're buying comments? Good image, I like high key, but a bit more contrast might have helped. umm, little "feet" for under heavy objects? 6
