Personally I think this image represents a buisness man having a good idea and towering above all the other un-innovative emploees.

Little Kiwi said...

I think it is a picture of someone who has a brillant idea and is doing something about it!!!!!
PS check out my post on I love NZ about what I want to do in the next 10 - 30 years from now.

Little Miss Room 18 said...

Also I think it represents somebody thinking out of the square as the building is shaped like a square and the man is out of the box! :-)

BTW. Affect refers to an emotion or to attck whereas effect is to make happen or acomplish.

I think you choose this picture because Its like the guy in it is thinking outside of the box or out of every day life.

I think that it means we should think out of the little box that we live in. Also that it means that he wants to go futher than the top of the busniness chain with his own determination.

Midnight Baloney said...

I think that this represents "thinking outside out the box" because the building looks like a box.

I think it is a man who is stuck in his job and needs multiple bookmarks for his important file. He then thought outside the box and invented/innovated post it notes! he plans to take them to the world and become a famous entrepreneur

QueenBead said...

I think it means that the man has ignored what everyone else has said and had a new idea that was "out of the box" even if everyone else says he can't.

black wolf said...

I think it represents out of the box ideas.

Bubbles said...

I think this picture is about an inventer and the idea he has just created. I also think he is towering the other people because he is coming out of his shell and giving ideas that are the trates of an entrepreneur!!!

this means to me that the inventors are in a building bellow the innovator that witch uses the ideas of the inventors to make their form of the product

Winged Hussar said...

then again he could have opened the box which represents busy people trying to research brilliant ideas and thought outside it opening up a whole world of creative ideas.

Mystery Man said...

I think it means that it does not matter what everyone else has or wants to do and encourages people to find a way by themselves. Think outside the box for good ideas and even if it may be a bit difficult to achieve persist and make it work like on the youtube video in the post above this one.

sportingking said...

I think that the picture is showing someone thinking outdside the box and that person has thought of an idea better than everybody else in the building.
