Wallpaper: August 2010

By now you will have noticed I have not been posting on this blog over this past week or so. I am on the road and will be spending much of August in Indonesia on assignment and in meetings with several organizations. Last week I taught a workshop on how to compose and shoot better images with the camera you have. Fun stuff, I have not taught complete novices’ in a long time and it was rewarding.

Indonesia is green to say the least. Lush vegetation of every plant imaginable. Yet, as is so often the case, one of my favorite images was taken in the most common of places – next to the wall of a hotel. This photo of bamboo communicates relaxation and peace to me and so I hope it will work well on your desktop. This month I continued the idea I started with last month in providing you with a theme for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Keep checking back for post, or better still subscribe and you will be notified when something goes live. Until then, so take some pictures!

    Serene, indeed, Matt. Great selection for a wallpaper image – looks great on my iPod Touch. Was that shot with your 1.4 lens?

    Lovely. We are in the process of hunting down some bamboo for growing in our backyard as it's such a wonderful plant. Problem is, when one starts looking into bamboo, it's mindboggling the various types of bamboo there are to chose from.

    Your image is on my desktop now as a reminder that there are many ways to enjoy bamboo if one can't get the right live version!

    So what apps are inside the bundled categories on that iPhone image? Photogy, Utilities, Productivity? Is that your iphone image? I'm looking for some more good apps.

    Nice delicate shot/wallpaper, too.
