Ever since I got my first digital camera, a Konica Minolta Z2(which I loved), I was fascinated by taking photos.
Mostly photographing for me isn’t about people, it is about the places, the landscapes and scenic views. Typically what I try when I take a picture is to get the location in its “quietest” form, meaning without any moving entities like people or animals. Obviously I do take photos of people, like family and friends or even something more random like a couple sitting on bench in a pretty park or a squirrel running up a tree. but the ones I like to go back to, the ones I like looking at the most are those that are clean of animated figures. I guess for me those are the purest.
Out of the thousands of photographs I’ve taken over the years, I continuously use the ones I like best as my desktop background. I thought to myself that I could share these photos with other people who are perhaps tired of their boring one-colored desktop background or default Windows ones.
Out of the many photos I have used, I’ve chosen 10 of the best ones, at least I think they are, to share. The photos have been taken in different places in Europe.
Important to mention is that I’m by no means a professional photographer or even use anything close to a professional camera, all of the photos below were taken with my Minolta or my point and shoot Canon camera.

Here’s a Windows 7 tip for you. If you didn’t already know this, you can have Windows shuffle your desktop backgrounds automatically.
You can follow these quick steps to achieve this:
1. Right-click your desktop and choose the “Customize” option at the bottom:
2. In the window that opens, select “Dsektop Background”.
3. In the window that opens, select “Browse” and choose the folder where you have the photos stored.
4. You can then select a single photo as your background or even choose multiple and “Shuffle” so Windows changes between them at a set interval.
