Did I just see that?

There is an iconic view of Dorothy on the Yellow Brick Road that you find all over the place. The road is somewhat central in the composition, with a tree on the left and some green (often the Emerald City, which is all spire-y  like it's made of Evergreen Trees) in the background. Sometimes flowers, sometimes water....but it always kind of looks the same, so that even if you left Dorothy out, you'd know what the picture was really a picture of. You recognize it. It's that common.
