What's your Wallpaper look like?

So what is it?

I'm currently using this one attached, which I got from here:
http://www.zastavki.com/eng/Photosho...er-8151-12.htm

I tend to move between green naturey images and the strange stuff from dlanham.com

I'm using a standard Vista wallpaper at the moment, the one with the tropical branch that fans out across a light blue ocean. I change mine about once a week, and prefer nature or animals.

I have a desktop changer that changes the desktop every 1 minute. And have amassed a collection of some 1300 images for it to choose from. Everything from book cover art, nature scenes, cars and my own images of friends, family and random other stuff.

I'm so narcissistic, I only use pictures I took myself.

Currently it's this one, but I change it often.

I have an aerial picture of the village I used to live in as a child. My brother still lives there. It's called Melton Ross and is in England in North Lincolnshire. You can see where my various members of my family lived and where I went to primary school and church. It often makes me nostalgic as I haven't been back to England since I came here in 1972. I got the picture from a website run by the man who used to live next door.

That's a nice one, Gideon. I like that.

Normally I get mine from Smashing Magazine, as every month in their blog they post a whole stack of user-submitted desktops that include a calendar for the month. Currently I'm using this one on my laptop:

http://media1.smashingmagazine.com/i.../dandelion.jpg

and this one on the iMac:

http://media2.smashingmagazine.com/i...ll/spring2.jpg

Obviously, I change them every month.

Cheers,
Marc

I usually use my own photographs of family or from holidays or trips. At the minute I have one of my son and my parents standing in front of Legoland Windsor on a trip there last October.

The work one I can't change & it's the Gherkin in London. At home it's a nice picture of Jelena Jankovic.

What do you mean I'm sad - I'm not listening!

Several years ago, I visited the Kelingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow and fell in love with "Hesperus" by Joseph Noel Paton. As soon as I got home, I ordered a print of the painting and downloaded the image as the background for my computer.

Not too sure where I picked it up, its been there a while. I made the slide back in 1972 at an art exhibit. Converted it to digital about 10 years ago. It looked better before I changed monitors and video card and now it is showing its limits of resolution.

The original work is not copywritten and I release rights to anyone that wants to use it under CC.
