When I travel, I feel like I often look at textures and photos and think that something or other will make a great desktop background. I used to be really good about changing my background often. It was recently pointed out to me that I had the same photo for a long time:
I took this photo on a chilly morning in our old rental house. It was an older house with the original single pane windows. I had left the blinds down overnight, so the condensation froze on the windows! While I was upset that this happened in the first place, it made an amazing photo while the sun was rising and the frost was melting.
I also had this one up for a while:
I took this photo when I was in Brazil visiting my Fiancé's family. His family has a small farm that I went to visit with his aunt. These beautiful flowers were all over the place. Also, I like how the 2 flowers in the middle kindof look like butterflies kissing :) This made a great summer background.
Then yesterday, when I realized it was time to remove the aforementioned frozen windows from my background, I switched it to this photo:
I purchased this photo on iStockphoto a while ago when working on a holiday card for my former employer. Still love the photo, but its way too bright for a background!
Finally, yesterday I settled on this one:
This photo is from a second trip to Brazil. One night we ate at a fabulous restaurant: Tantra. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, so I took my camera around! The food was good too :)
So we'll see how long this one lasts! In the meantime, I keep looking for great backgrounds on my travels.
What is on your desktop background?
