Question 11: in Our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number”

4th September 2009 by Lisa

If you’re into iconic photography like our photographer friends, you might find this question a little easier than the last one. Take your time and make sure you don’t jump too quickly because today we’re awarding our prizes based on lucky draw, not speed. All that matters is that you get it right (and of course that you’re lucky!). You have until Sunday night to answer.



Part 4

The bears had passed their tests with ease, proving they could recognize detail and style. But Goldi wasn’t done with them yet. “But what about composition,” she asked, “if we take away detail are your eyes still keen? Can you tell me who took these, without being mean?”

3 Kisses Image

Poppa bear growled, “Enough with the games, just leave us alone!”
Momma bear roared, “Give us some real work to do!”
Baby bear’s eyes twinkled and he said, “I know these works–they all depict a kiss! Just give me two seconds–if you don’t mind that is, miss.”

Q: Who are the three photographers who took these romantic images?

As usual, answers go in the comments please – and we’ll approve them all Monday, when we put the next clues live and announce today’s winners!

Today’s winners will each receive a set of MOO MiniCards and a free year of Flickr pro.

The “Three Is The Magic Number” quiz is part of our third birthday celebrations! If you hadn’t noticed, we have a promotion on postcards right now – 20%* off until midnight on Sunday September 6, (GMT).

*The discount will be applied when you checkout.
