I have seen this done a lot and wanted to give it a try. My creative juices haven't been flowing lately but I decided to just pull the camera out and play a bit tonight even if it isn't original it is interesting :)
I shot this for November 22, 2010 Flickr Group "Macro Mondays" theme. The Theme was 7 deadly sins. I am guessing this could go for a few of the sins but my thoughts were on Greed when I decided to go this route.
I decided to play with the toothbrush macro some more. It occured to me my other ones were trying to keep a lot of DOF. I thought it would look neat to use a shallow DOF to make the tips of the bristles appear that they were floating in mid air. Again I have said it before, I'll say it again. I am easily amused.
