A cliché (from French, klɪ’ʃe) is a phrase, expression, or idea that has been overused to the point of losing its intended force or novelty, especially when at some time it was considered distinctively forceful or novel. – Wikipedia.

Stock photography consists of existing photographs that can be licensed for specific uses. Publishers, advertising agencies, graphic artists, and others use stock photography to fulfill the needs of their creative assignments. A customer who uses stock photography instead of hiring a photographer can save time and money, but can also sacrifice creative control. – Wikipedia.

“When we all think alike, then no one is thinking” – Walter Lipmann.

the below example has a different idea “Sharing” although it features  fish and fish bowls.

The below example; although featuring a gold fish in a fish bowl has a different concept behind it from the jumping fish examples – as it advertises a window cleaning detergent. the idea is clear (no pun intended)
