I have another suggestion for your ears today. An album I recently found that has been available for a while now it seems. I have been a fan of this musician for a long time without even realizing it. Mick Turner is a guitarist that has worked with all sorts of various big names in the indie music world. Most directly and obviously is his involvement with the group The Dirty Three.

At any rate, I will skip the history as its already been written a million other places more accurately and with a more professional gloss than what I can manage anyhow. This is a beautiful album full of slow, calm, rambling guitar along with the occasional other instrumentation. Almost ambient in the end but in a smooth, relaxing sort of a way. A great album for times when your mind needs a break which mine often seems to need so I love coming across such albums as this.

So take a moment and listen on iTunes or Amazon or wherever you prefer… surely your mind could use such a calm moment as well..

Through the Flowers

Another day, another set of desktops for everyone. The images here were shot while I was in Munich and they are so similar I just figured I should release them in a pack together to make it simple and this way you get them all at once and can choose by trying. My trip was a great one and I have other photos I would like to share here soon and I’m coming up with a good way of doing that. But for now enjoy these and I will check back soon. Im feeling a music post coming..

Please use these only for your desktop wallpaper and nothing more. No commercial use is allowed! Thanks and enjoy! Download the pack by clicking the link HERE.

I am alive and well in Germany this week and finally have an internet connection so I thought I would post a desktop for everyone. Contradicting the cold rainy weather I have been in all week I chose a simple image of a purple flower surrounded by white ones. Not to much to report outside of doing well and enjoying my time in Munich, still 4 days left so im going to get to living them.

To download the desktop simply click the image below or maybe right click the image and download the attached file. Legal info is in the zip file but pretty much I just ask that you dont use the image for any commercial use and otherwise, enjoy!



This was a popular one when I posted it up on flickr so I decided to make it the next post in my series of photos taken here in this spot. Only a couple more of these sorts of shots left I think. I will try and get some more nature shots in sometime for those of you who like those.

Sorry about the big preview image, its the best way I could come up with to show a little piece of each desktop without posting 8 images, click the image to download the set of 8 desktops. Remember, these are not for commercial use! Feel free to use them as your desktop wallpaper and send your friends a link to the site but please ask before using them for anything else, thanks and enjoy!



I Have had a couple of requests now for some desktops with a bit more of a spring feeling which is a reasonable request I thought so I shot these as a response, I will shoot some more as I find some images that I think represent spring without being too terribly cliché if thats possible :)

As always, these are to be used for your own personal use and not for any commercial use. Thanks for understanding, click the desktop you would like to have and you will be on your way to a fresh start for your computing day.



Whats Next

So its been a good while it seems since I have posted anything about my life so why not fill you guys in on my newest travel plans. Anyone that has been following my sites long enough probably know that I really love to travel and so I am happy to say that I have another trip planned back to Europe and this time I will be heading to Munich, Germany for about a week and a half in May.

I really dont have much of anything specific planned other than I have a plane ticket and a place to stay there with a friend. I prefer trips like this really, just to keep things open and ready for anything that may come along while I am there. I just really enjoy the feeling of being outside of my everyday element, somewhere new or foreign. It just feels good and inspiring to be a little lost and under prepared. Trips with too much planing often feel forced to me so I am really looking forward to this trip. Anyone in the area feel free to write and say hello and maybe we can get together if your interested. Its nice to know the faces behind the readers of my site sometimes.

So other than that I still have a number of desktops lined up and ready to go that I will try and get out sooner than later. So heres to a new adventure on the horizon..

To whom it may concern,



• Enjoy the images! It’s a labor of love, thanks for your support!
• Share with friends.
• Send me a quick mail if you are interested in using an image for commercial or personal use other than wallpaper.


• Post desktops elsewhere online.
• Share links directly to images.
• Pass them around in mass.
• Make prints.
• Use images for web banners or graphics. (send a quick email to ask, I’m pretty easy going about this with permission.)
• Use them in commercial work.

If you help me out with these I will be able to keep doing what I love to do. Thanks again, really, for your support and understanding. -J

Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
