My New Desktop Background

This is the picture I've used as my new desktop background. What is that? I think this is just some random picture my 4 year old son has taken. You know, he has learned to aim a camera to something, press the shutter button and got his own pictures. He makes outrageous mistakes by photographers' standard. A lot of times the lens was obscured by his finger, the picture was blurry, or he has framed on some unobvious objects. But sometimes his pictures also have certain abstract, artistic quality, certain intricacy of light, something totally original that you will never know how to make. So instead of just deleting his pictures, I have kept some of them.

Abstract Desktop Background

When I was flipping through my picture library to select a desktop background, one of his come out fittingly! I used to use pictures of beautiful landscape or family portrait as a background. What a mistake! The subject, the detail and the contrast are really distracting. Desktop is a place for holding clutters and a place for work. If you want to see beautiful picture, you should run a slide show. Turn out this out of focus picture of some place in my home works wonderfully. It stays in the background as a background image should. It provides good contrast to the icons over it. It has more visual interest than a plain solid color background. And viola, I've a totally unique picture nobody else has!
