The person that originally sent me the info also gave me two hints today based on the invititation sent to Swedish journalists.
1) Pay attention to the low light situation of the image.
2) The Number Six and Feng Shui symbols http://www.squidoo.com/feng-shui-symbols
Do I think Canon's marketing department is creative enough to have deep meanings in the images on invitations? In a word, no.
However, I have never had a source be so adamant that what is being told to us is true. I'm hoping for some additional information from other sources.
I do want to thank the source for their continued good humor, I am enjoying it.
