38/365 Puzzled

    Newer Older

    I bought this 1000 piece puzzle for my wife years ago. It's of one of her favorite paintings, Gustav Kilmt's The Kiss. We've had lots of excuses for never putting it together: not enough time, our table was too small, the kids will eat the pieces, etc. Maybe this will be the year we start it. At least we've opened the box now.

      Now you've made the commitment we need to see the finished product!

      I really like this shot, how big the pieces in the front look and the endless DOF. You've made it look like a very daunting task to put all those pieces together.

      Daunting is right. At least we have some motivation now.

      Uncooked rice? You crack me up. I'm off to find big rice.

      So ingenious and so well done!

      Something about the perspective gives it a landscape feel. (After the earthquake?)

      Wonderful picture. I used it as a metaphor for trying to put all of the pieces of a business together using inventory management software in my blog entry: Why Inventory Management Software Is So Important.

      Great work on this piece of art.

      Dear Myki,

      Thank you for this wonderful photo. With your permission, I'd like to use it in a book I'm writing for teachers on presentation strategies. "I’ve dumped a thousand puzzle pieces on you and it may take you (as it says on the box) “5 to 8 years” to put it together. You are welcome to use some or all of the pieces – and add pieces of your own – to create the beautiful scene on the outside of your puzzle box, not mine." Your image is perfect to make my point.
