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!
