Were you swept off your feet by the glow of the Sonoma hills?  Were you forever transformed by the view of those roofs in Paris? Do yo have an image to immortalize that favela in Brazil? Is it just one lonely, beautiful tree?  How high were those waves of the ocean and did you see that glorious sunset? Is your electricity box just like a cityscape? Or is your imaginary landscape more fascinating than anything to be seen around you?
