I have a folder with pictures of dishes I have cooked and taken pics of. My decktop wallpaper is from this folder. They rotate through all the pictures in the folder. I think they switch every 1/2 hour.

Iguassu Falls...on the border of Brazil and Argentina, the most awesome natural wonder I've ever seen. Think Niagara Falls times 50 !!

I have been changing mine up a lot lately. Mainly shots of my kids. Today happened to be a shot of my daughter Charlotte taken last year at my son's apartment while we were getting together for a night out. You can see a bit of the the old man the shot also....

There is no need to be torn. There is a very simple application to be completed requesting acceptance as a converted fan of Red Sox Nation.

Kayelle, that is gorgeous! Two of my favourite things in that picture - water falls and rainbows! I have a (very) large picture in my bedroom that DH bought me last year. It is a photo that has been enhanced with oil paints to give a bit of a 3D look. I have always wondered where it was taken and I think it may be here! Now that I have a reference, I am going to dig deeper on that!

Charlie, it took me about 15 minutes to figure it out and sad to say that I can't for the life of me tell you how I did it.

Mine has a few photos of different scenes. One I know is Arches National Park. Somewhere in this house is a shot of my husband standing under the Arch in the photo. One is an ice scene, not sure where, probably Alaska. One I think is of the Grand Canyon, and the fourth is a waterfall and I'm wondering if it's Waimea Falls.
