October Desktop Image

posted on: October 1, 2006

Every month or so I change my desktop image to a photograph I've taken and I thought it would be fun to share these images in my blog so that you can download them for your desktop as well! Every month I'll try to post a new image that is suitable for displaying at desktop size and resolution. Click on an image to download a copy for your desktop.

This month I wanted something textured for my desktop, something almost 3D. As I was eating lunch, I loved the textures of the rice and meat, but figured I probably shouldn't have food on my desktop or I might be hungry all the time. Then I wanted to do comfortable textures like leather and velvet, but they don't photograph well. Finally I settled on two things that had great texture and depth. By using the macro setting on my little Canon PowerShot, I was able to get the super close-ups you see here. Any thoughts on what these items actually are?

    The first one is a steel barrel. They use these at the cider mill for garbage cans. The second one is a blanket.

  2. Hmmmm.... on the right track... but not quite close enough!

  3. I'm thinking placemat for the second one myself. Maybe a old timey film canister for the 1st?

  4. ding, ding, ding, on the film canisters!!! I think Megan may have had a tiny hint looking in my flickr stream ;-)

    Alex has a TON of these old 16mm films sitting around in our living room just waiting to get mailed!! There's even an old Charlie Chaplin film!
