COOL DESKTOP BACKGROUNDS:
FEEDING MY WALLPAPER ADDICTION

I have a rather notorious craving for cool desktop pictures that I can use as "wallpaper" as I work or play. Despite my partial red-green color blindness, which limits my ability to see certain shades and details, I love interesting visual textures...and I get a hoot out of folks who stop in and see my latest desktop wallpaper: "Ooh, where did you get THAT?"

So I thought it would be good to create a page listing all the really great wallpaper pages or sites that I come across. It's not intended to be an exhaustive list...just sites that impressed me on some level. And if you know of a site you think I might like, feel free to drop me a note. I'll take a look, and I might end up including it here. Thanks for your interest!
