This week, it’s all about the quotes: the stark, stunning, anecdotal and amusing. We challenge you to share the ones you love, and moreover, turn any revelations into actions. It’s easy to consume a pictorial feast, but it’s more satisfying when you choose to share the bounty. Bon appetit!
What a weekend! What do you think of Piccsy 2.0?!
If you haven’t checked out the new site and explored the new and improved features, please do and let us know how you like it. We’re still smoothing out some imperfections and kinks, so we hope you’ll be patient with us during our transition. Through it all, we promise to continue to provide you with the images you’ve come to love us for!
So, let’s get back to what we do best: curating and cataloging amazing Piccs. We hope you enjoy this week’s lineup!
Love, Beauty and the Unexpected: these are what make for an extraordinary life, and, for some extraordinary Piccs. This week we saw lots of classic, funny, and unfamiliar quotes that piqued some universal interest and emotion.
Sometimes we find the greatest joy on Piccsy, and in life, is realizing you’re not alone. Many of these images capture that connection. Check them out and spread the love!
American literary critic, John Burroughs, once said, “To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter … to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring—these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
Every great artist strives for simplicity–simplicity in design, aesthetic, lines–but, the real lure in a great image comes from the ideas and associations it can provoke. On, Piccsy, we see simply stunning pictures rise to the top of our Popular Pages each week and we hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we have!
Maybe it has to do with the weather, but things are definitely heating up on Piccsy these days. This week we saw all things Wild and Free; and, continued to find beauty from behind, beneath and every where in between. Check out the alluring, the adorable and the out-right awesome, below.
This week on the Piccsy pages, the overarching theme seemed to be that you don’t give a…care in the world about what other people think. Thank you for uploading and sharing, we loved them all! From the free-spirited and fantastical; the soulful and serious; the quotes and the quizzical, dig into this week’s most popular piccs, below.
