Pairs ~ Artist's Play Room #32

The octopus (play /ˈɒktəpʊs/; plural: octopusesoctopi, or octopodes) is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. Octopuses have two eyes and four pairs of arms and, like other cephalopods, they are bilaterally symmetric.

And I just thought they were funky!!!

What DO these two photographs have in common?!

And does this one BElow make any sense to you?!

I have to say that somedays it feels very much that someone has taken my brain out for a washing and left me a strange "loaner" to get me by...

Such is the case with Artist's Play Room #32...

just add water silly's blog hop link

Those sure are funky octopus...interesting info too.

The common element in the next two photos...two sentient beings on walkabout heading in the same direction. ;)

A little confused by the bottom one but I see two fish kissing. lol

Have a great day! :)

The octopuses are very funky :0)
The two pictures are 'Turning Tail' ?
The fishes are Kissing Gouramies ?
BE well with your washed out brain, it serves you well :0)

Love the funky octopus pair. All I can see in common is the walking away theme, I'm boring. Love the fish, I see 8 of them, some kissing and some not talking :)
Excellent load of pairs.

I love your octopuses, Currie. They remind me of Eric Carle's work, who is one of my favorite children's books illustrator. Blessings!

Okay, I love the colorful octopi! But I had no clue how the first two pictures related. The overlapping pairs of fishes I really like!

I am sorry I am so late commenting, I just posted my entry this morning!
