We've done this one before, folks, but lawless523 had a spiffy Gravitation image on hers so I commented and now have to play! Besides, last time I did my office PC. This time, it's the Mac at home, but it's still a landscape photo.

This is Great Pond in Eastham, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod. I took the photo this past summer. I just liked the peacefulness of it. I guess I should get some Saiyuki or other fannish wallpapers, but I haven't seen all that many I like.

ETA: Besides, I like how the Mac OS X application dock at the bottom really looks like a dock, overlooking the pond!

Is yours mathematically generated?

I believe so- of course, now that I am looking for that exact image/page, I can't seem to find it again (or the bookmark I made for it). In any case, the artist is primarily a mathematician and computer scientist who loves fractals, so, it's a pretty good bet. ;)

You're right about the smoothness of the water - I didn't even think about that before!

Of course it's a warm day in the summer, so the air was pretty still. The ripples are mostly from people splashing - the protected swimming area was behind me as I took the picture.

Very pretty. It's been awhile since I've been to Cape Cod.

I like pretty men on my wallpaper. I'm shallow that way.

I get wound up and hyper at work, so I got used to using landscape photos as backgrounds. But I could maybe go for some Minekura wallpaper at home.

Pretty men or pretty women could get distracting.

Eiri Yuki was distracting when the computer he was on was across the room. Now that it's the one I use, I don't notice so much anymore, though I stop occasionally to drool.

Sanzo's the wallpaper for my other computer, the one that's not fully functional now, but it's a combination of an enlarged version of a line drawing of his face, the back cover from Reload 3 (him sitting with his robes folded down to his waist and holding his gun), and the words of muichimotsu on a white background. For whatever reason I didn't find it too distracting. Familiarity brees complacency, I guess.

The Cape is pretty, and it also has a really positive emotional vibe for me - I'm as free as I can be at this stage of life when we're at the Cape.

LOL ... I am such a party-pooper when it comes to that type of art: all I can think is "Gee, she's going to be picking bark and moss out of all sorts of places!"

XD
