City and the bay

When I was younger I used to love doing jigsaw puzzles during the school holidays. The puzzle pictures that I liked most were the ones that evoked a sense of place. I liked pictures of city streets, or quaint alpine wooden houses with window boxes full of flowers, or horses grazing lazily in a field somewhere. I wasn't much into baskets of kittens, or underwater scenes featuring dolphins.

I think that what I enjoyed most about putting these puzzles together was the way that I got drawn into the scene; it was escapism, just like reading a really good book. There's something about this photo that makes me feel the same way - I could stare at it for hours. Now if only someone would make it into a jigsaw puzzle for me. ;)

    Interesting post Kerry-Anne. We were on holiday in Cape Town when the 2010 final draw was made and, having decided that Long Street may be too frenetic for our aged bones, went up Signal Hill to take some photos looking down. The results were a little like yours – the unusual downward angle made all the buildings really interesting.

    I had the same thought about jigsaw puzzles – I bet there is someone on the web that would turn photos into a puzzle – and they would make lovely personalised gifts come to think of it.

    Hi Helen, I just recently came across this website through Google and was wondering if you still need a puzzle made from this picture. I do personalised jigsaw puzzles and our biggest size is a 180 piece puzzle (A3 size). Let me know if you still interested.
