what do c&vers use as their smartphone background/wallpapers they don't mind seeing constantly?

mine is normally a drivetrain shot of the most recent build that i'm both happy about riding and admiring. (they don't all turn out that way.) the practice is a nice, little pat-on-the-back after spending so much time refurbishing them.

but after selling them, i certainly can't look at it anymore. so ... back to my grocery getter!

It's been this view for a while.



(There are poles in the background, not sure if that disqualifies it from this thread)

Not C&V, but these 2 knuckleheads follow me everywhere.


The pic changes constantly, but the subjects never do.

MY C&V smartphone? They've been around that long now?
My cell is older than any SP. No wallpaper, nor will it die.

Hmm, I don't have any bicycle related wall paper. Right now, it is a picture I took of the Santa Barbara coast when I was there for the oil spill last year. Being so used to East and Gulf Coast beaches, the rocky shorelines were quite interesting to me

No bike related wallpaper or screen savers. I like the natural photos. Recently in a grocery store I spotted a most gorgeous vegetable. It's a cross between broccoli & cauliflower, and I took a macro photo with my phone. It's now the desktop background on my 27" iMac.

Here's my screensaver. I took the pic of my lunch last time I was at the Belly Buster, which has not changed one iota since the 70's. Best subs in Toronto hands down. Not bike related other than it's about an 17km ride for me to get there which I always do to justify eating the sub. Also the place itself is definitely C & V:

He still has a party line

Or to get very C&V, you lift the receiver and hear an operator says "Number please".

I don't have the image on my laptop, but its' a pic of the bootyful curly-stayed Hetchins hanging on the wall at the Old Spokes Home in Burlington, VT. I think I'd give my eye teeth for that one.
