    Apparently I, like Rocco, cannot upload files anymore. :(:(:(

    My desktop is: a close-up of a lichen covered rock where me and my friend stopped to rest on our hike on Sunday.

    Just a quick (not astronomically correct) edit I made. :)

    Interesting. I have to ask:

    Are you using a monitor in portrait as opposed to landscape orientation? Just wondering.

    Judge, Why do you find it interesting, the orientation or the subject, or both?

    Anyway, yes, the uploaded image here is portrait orientation. I am using an edited version.

    I think it looks like this because I used my cell-phone to take the picture, and held it vertically to get the view I desired. It goes automatically to portrait when held vertically. Then I sent it to my ipad, edited - cropped it a little to force it to look better while in landscape orientation, and am using it as my background on the ipad.

    LOL....Thanks. I didn't even think about that. Lovely picture in any case.

    I'm one of the last persons on the planet who doesn't even own a hand-held device. :oops:

    I know it can be tough at times to take a portrait-oriented picture and convert it to wallpaper for a widescreen monitor. A whole lot of creative cropping required! Something I recently ran into while converting my parents' slide collection to .jpgs.

    Judge, I know about 1/50 of the functioning of my cell phone. The first couple of days I had it, I almost threw it over the back fence. If it weren't for the long (1500 mi. & more) drives that I take, I would not have it but daughter insisted I have it for travels. Makes sense I s'pose.

    Murin-an, a gorgeous strolling garden in Kyoto. 19th century, I think.
    Not my pic, sadly... Don't know where my pics of Murin-an have been stored...
