Pins in the picture?
In fact that's what we do: putting pins in pictures. To hold them into place. Into one place. Into our place.
Why should we do that?

To be clear, pins are not the actual inspiration sources. In my opinion they are rather a reflection of where they stand for. A bookmark and redirection.
