Wallpaper Monday

Purple

Okay, technically it’s Tuesday, but that’s only because I got involved in a movie (Looper; it was much better than I expected and actually fried my brain a bit, which I always appreciate in a movie) and then dinner dishes and then this and that and…well, it’s almost 01:00 but I’m still calling this Monday.

With its close focus and empty horizon, this wallpaper could be almost anywhere. In fact it’s at Seven Sisters Country Park in England, where the high tide has partially submerged an abandoned dock. The post-sunset color palette is lovely, but my favorite part is that coil of rope in the foreground. It draws the eye, then leads the viewer deeper into the shot to discover more bits of rope and netting…and to realize that a seemingly empty scene is in fact full of the signs of past activity.

    I got a new 15.6″ Windows 8 touch screen. Only a 4-cell battery, but man is it sweet! This will be wallpaper. I love it. Even when you’re busy you find great stuff Fletcher. I will NOT miss netbook. I’mm almost 50 and wear bifocals. That was awful. Wallpaper my brains out, I can take it now!

    In a big screen, instead of water, it seems that a strange dense mist is engulfing the dock.
    Something is going to happen in this alternative reality…
