September 2009, by Lisa | 41 Comments – latest by linda miranda

If you haven’t entered our quiz yet, this question may be your ticket. I think this one is much easier than some of the others. The rules are simple: read through the clue, submit your answer in the comments and we’ll choose the winner from random tomorrow.

Buena Suerte!

Unbearable Lightness of Being:
Momma’s Tale

We had a client, Goldilocks her name
If we’d not dealt with her, would be no loss.
She threatened my family, much to my shame
And she made it clear, that she was our boss.
She gave us some tests, our worth to ensure.
And treated our photos like so much dross.
A particular man she wanted to capture

on film or she’d become so very cross.

September 2009, by Lisa | 1 Comment – latest by David Anderson

We hope that the questions from yesterday added some fun and challenge to your day. It seemed many of you found question 15 rather easy. We figured question 13 would be easier (the answer could be found right here in the archives of the blog), but as it turns out it wasn’t so obvious.

Here’s the answers and our randomly chosen winners.

Question 13:
Answer: MiniCards, NoteCards, StickerBooks
We announced the products on this blog when they were launched. The archives reveal all.

Question 15 of our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

September 2009, by Lisa | 21 Comments – latest by Liz Randell

Corvus, our amazing clue writer, writes “Here’s today’s Third Zone. It should be pretty easy for folks.” Should I disagree with him? You tell me.

Bonne Chance!

The Third Zone: A Third of a Picture Paints 333.3333333 Words

Now that our three designers are aware the world is changing around them, it’s as if blindfolds have been removed, exposing their eyes to the bright sunshine. But the light striking their retinas now isn’t coming from an unfamiliar sun… in the Third Zone. Each of them realizes that not everything around them is as they originally thought–other visions are coming through slowly, as their eyes acclimate to a new way of perceiving the world.

Rod pauses, blanks, and looks at …Continue reading this article…

Question 14 in our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

September 2009, by Lisa | 27 Comments – latest by TJ

In the second question of the day, we’re reunited with our three photographers who are still trying to win the job. This question maybe a little easier for those with a photographic mind and who are prone to a bit wanderlust. If that doesn’t sound like you, no worries, I’m sure a quick image search may make the difference.

And, now back to the bears…

Unbearable Lightness of Being

Goldilocks wanted one last test before she’d agree to hire the bears. “My photographers must be world travelers,” she archly said. “If you can you identify these three landmarks, I’ll happily hire you for this job.”

3 Landmarks

Poppa bear’s ears perked up. “Landmarks? Does this …Continue reading this article…

Question 12 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

September 2009, by Lisa | 41 Comments – latest by ann

Here we go. It’s the last question of the week. Remember, we’re choosing our winner based on lucky draw. Take your time, submit the right answer and you may win. Here goes …

The Third Zone: Three Paths

A crossroads, decisions to be made. A direction to choose. Each of us reach many such crossroads in our lives, but Rod, Grant, and Blaise had come to a crossroads… in the Third Zone.

By now all three have realized that the city streets they walk are not the same streets they are used to. Grant wishes he’d taken Atlas’s map. Blaise wishes she’d taken a peak at Index’s books. Rod wishes he’d been able to keep up with TAG. But …Continue reading this article…

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

September 2009, by Lisa | 58 Comments – latest by Saturnfox

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 …Continue reading this article…

Question 10 in our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the magic Number”!

September 2009, by Lisa | 23 Comments – latest by Saturnfox

Happy Friday! Some of you may be happy to hear, we’re going to change how we award prizes. It should give those of you who are a little slower of the mark (like me) a better chance at winning. Rather than awarding the prize to the person with the first correct answer, we’ll be choosing today’s winners based on a lucky draw. This means, if you can figure out the answer to the cryptic quiz before Monday morning, you have a chance at winning today’s prize. So, take your time, think about it and then submit your answer in the comments. As always, we won’t approve the comments until Monday.

Today’s prize is a free set of MOO MiniCardsContinue reading this article…
