Show us your desktop background.

Out of curiosity, what sort of background do you have on your desktop.

For today, this is mine.

Mine is the black and white. This was for the championship at a trial in Memphis in 2007. He's a good dog, won at the National's trial in 2006.

Because I do Photoshop for a living, my background is an 18% neutral gray tint.

We've done this a zillion times on BF, but here's mine.
This is on my Bill Gates "powered" desktop computer. It's from stage 4, 2002 Tour de France, compliments of Graham Watson.



This is on my MacBook Pro. It's one of many pictures I took while on vacation last April on St. George Island, Florida.

From the rim of Crater lake during the Crater lake century ride last August. Yes, I'm going again even though it is a major effort to get to Klamath Falls, OR.

Wow, you guys have taken some great photos!

Terrierman, what a great shot. Those are hard to get. Was the photographer a guy with a giant sports lens? Was this at* the nationals?

My Bernese Mountain Dog's half-sister just placed in the Agility Nationals...That is an amazing* thing for a dog that big.
