I'm hoping I'm not the only one out there -- but sometimes, flipping through magazines, I am simply blown away with how beautiful the photography is. And I'm not talking super fancy magazines -- just Real Simple and Glamour. (Okay, and Bon Appetit, but the photography in that one is crazy stunning, no surprise: food photography is nuts. [hee hee])

Some, I've framed -- three monochromatic pieces of nature, actually: closeups of a brilliantly green leaf, a stunning red flower of some sort, and... maybe something yellow? I can't recall at the moment. But others -- either they just make me sigh, or seriously want, or-- perhaps crazily--laugh out loud, it's such a genius advertisement.
