Saw the sunset from the train on my way home, it was gorgeous -- half the sky was scarlet. By the time I got to Mountain Station is was almost gone, this is a shot of the very end of it that I think works nicely as a desktop wallpaper.

Speaking of tormentas eléctricas, we're having a pretty dramatic one tonight. I got a nice cloudscape shot just beforehand.
(Actually the full size image of this would make a really nice wallpaper file.)

A delightful bit of asemia that we saw at the NC museum of art: Tom Phillips*, the calligrapher replies Ⅰ.
According to the NC Museum of Art Handbook of the Collections,
"The painting is a tease. It invites and resists interpretation. Viewers can pick out a word here, a phrase there, but the artist has intentionally entrapped the content within the written maze."
(worth trying out as a wallpaper as well)
*And lo and behold! I did not recognize his name -- it turns out Mr. Phillips is the author of A Humument, now available in its 5th edition and in app form for iPad.

Time for a visit to the Scenes From a Multiverse store -- Jonathan is making some great wallpaper graphics available on a "pay what you like" basis, in hopes that "what you like" will be >0. Go spiff up your monitor and toss some bucks in the cup. While you're there you can pick up some spiffy tee-shirts as well.

The Wooster Collective has some photos of a mural project by Göla, at a school in Palestine, any of which will work very well as desktop wallpaper:

Your wallpaper search is over: this picture by Roland and Julia Seitre is all you will ever need for desktop background. (Select, of course, for it to be "tiled" rather than "stretched".)
You can view it at the Seitres' website.
However do not download it for personal use
without asking their permission.)

Time for another entry in the grafitti blog: My dad sends along a link to Internesni Kazki, which documents the murals of Ukrainian artists AEC and WAONE in various cities of Europe. I love this piece from Kiev, posted last month:
(Also, here is an image that works very well as desktop wallpaper.)
