New wallpaper - maybe a bad idea

So yesterday I let DS use my computer for a little while. He has his own computer but he wanted to look at a map on mine so I said fine.

Of course, for some reason, when I sat down later to do some work, my wallpaper was gone. I have no idea how the kid could have made my wallpaper disappear, but the picture I had up [the one I took at Disney World of the Materhorn mountain that looks like an Alp] was gone. I must have moved it off my computer, because I did an overhaul of my picture files last week so it's gone from the drive. [I could find it on a CD but I didn't feel like looking] After all, it's going to be September soon and it's time for a change.

So I picked this picture as my new wallpaper...

And now I'm sort of regretting it, because not only does it beckon me to lean closer to the monitor and hope I fall in, it also makes me long to go back to the beach when I should be longing to get some writing done instead.

What's your wallpaper? Does it inspire you or is it just there?

My wallpaper is an artist's rendering of a guy who is serving as my hero inspiration.

Your new pic looks like the entrance to the beaches around here. I wonder where it was taken.

This is a great topic! At the moment mine is a picture of DH and Spock (I mean Leonard Nimoy) because DH just looks so darn happy.

My next will be a shot of Old Faithful that a friend took. (Because I really, really, REALLY want to go to Yellowstone.)

OOh, Kristen, that's a good idea - but if I had a hunk on my wallpaper, I also probably would not get much work done. The picture was taken, btw, at Wildwood Crest here in NJ on our vacation last year.

Jen, I love that picture! LN and your DH look like a couple of old friends who got together for a photo. So cool.
