Deadlock by Mr-Frenzy Deadlock by Mr-Frenzy
Every now and then one gets faced with everyday puzzles, situations and problems that normally sorts it self out. But once a while, these everyday puzzles evolve into more complex situations, and nomatter how hard you try, the puzzle is stuck. Either you back out and the whole thing falls appart, or you keep pressing on hoping things will work out in the end.

Yeye, more blabber from me hehe. The piece was an idea i've had for some time, and last night i got the urge to rig up the scene and do some shooting. I was constantly trying to keep the piece smooth, clean and uncluttered at all times. I've even skipped out the usage of framing and my regular namestamp.

Hope you like it :)

Working time: 4 hours , shootage included
tools of the trade: photoshop cs2, canon eos 20d/w 24-70mm f/2.8L canon ex 580 speedlight, and my regular bucket of coffee :D

wow... you really nailed that concept. which is also funny (but not in the haha way or anything)... but when we are in that situation.. our bodys tend to tighten up into tight gripped clumps just like this puzzle complexity.

You really have got a great way of conveying concept. :D

Ooo.. good idea dude! I like the way that you've actually photographed this rather than rendered it in some 3D graphics programme...! Good use of lighting too!

All in all this is sweeeeeeeeeet!! Mmm Hmm!! :D
