What's your desktop picture?

I just changed mine to this, my hubby, taken in Tulum Mexico, January 17th...early morning. I love staring into it and remembering this walk along a deserted beach, 8AM. ....in JANUARY!
Some of those footprints around the base of the tree are mine.

This one. A red gazania that was blooming in my front yard. I have a lot of orange ones, but only a few red ones, so it's nice when a red one blooms.

Ah, yeah, there is a way to take the picture of your desctop and post it. But I do not remember how. Does anybody know how to do it?

I just recently changed mine from a stock Microsoft picture to this - one of my favourite pictures of my Dad and I. It was taken about 15 years ago when we met some family friends in Vancouver.

Charlie, since he says it is about "Cars" (the movie), I am guessing it is his avatar! But that is just my guess.

Andy, meant to send my condolences on the Pats - I was cheering for them too. I do not share Tom Brady's wife's feelings that they can't catch! And soon I will get to be torn between the Red Sox and the Blue Jays once again!

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.
