Sometimes it said, euphemistically, that he who is a little eccentric is one brick short of a full wall.

A digital image of rows of bricks under a pair of gloves with one brick missing from the top row.

This shot was well executed. The lighting is Great. Colors too. Nice Job

That's interesting. Being 'thick' a UK idiom for 'not too smart' (yet another euphemism : ), I thought you might be referring to "thick as a brick" and by extension to "few bricks short of wall", which is also the favourite one liner of a British friend of mine :)

Nice set-up. Great colors. I wish the work gloves had not been two-toned - they are somehow distracting and don't quite fit the simplicity of the rest of the image

Didn't know this one. I thought it might be 'few bricks short of a wall', but I am guessing the meaning is probably different..

I like the euphemism here. The different lighting makes it a bit more interesting. The gloves are a great add! I like the overall composition.

Wonderful combination of light and color. Very whimsical in concept. A fun image and composed properly. Well done.
