Vito is right about how they look like toys. I'm going to have to show them to my husband because I know for a fact they'd interest him.

Here's another interesting thing: when you're thinking about turning a photo into b&w, think about the color coding for these springs. Yellow is the strongest (most brittle?); in b&w, it's likely to reflect the most light and appear white or close to it. Blue is the "weakest" (has more flex?); in b&w, it's likely to soften out to some level of gray. I'm assuming the red and green springs fall somewhere in between in strength, so maybe my analogy sort of breaks down here since a deep, rich red can actually appear close to black in a photo. Well, at least the yellow and blue ones work as a comparison. (Good idea but not thought through too well.)
