I like to vary my desktop wallpaper and screensaver.  Sometimes I use landscape photos, sometimes images of paintings, and other times screencaps from TV shows or movies.  The past week I used screencaps from the wonderful TV series Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot.

And for the next week I am using screencaps from the 2011 sci fi film Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Cassini:


Although I freely admit that it was not a selfie (my arms are not that long), if you look very carefully, you can see me waving in the orb on the left.  (I was much younger then.)  

I was caught again by the same camera later, but it was a candid, so you cannot see me waving.

For a change of pace, I am using images of paintings by impressionist artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841 – 1919).

Interesting.

I don't really see my home page. It's full of "windows" and files for my work. I haven't changed the wallpaper for like two-three years.

Also, I've never been a fan of changing wallpapers etc., so a thread like this in a shaving forum surely piqued my curiosity.

Anyway, I have this one. I like classical music and found the wallpaper here. One of my all-times favorites.



It has a mystery.

Tartini dreamed of the devil and passed him his violin to compose that melody.

Love it for some strange reason.

My wallpapers aren't forum safe, except when we have company and then I just use a photo from my vacations.

Well, I got tired of my wallpapers/screensavers for the week, so I changed the theme a little early, this time using photos from the web of classic American cars that have found a home in Cuba.  Some are pretty rusty and corroded due to the climate there, but others have been restored and maintained beautifully.  And I love the colors on the buildings.

John, your last selections have been my favorites so far. I agree about the colorful exteriors. They lend themselves to making a good photo Smile
