An Accidental Background Image

I was messing around with my camera before I left the office Friday and took this shot of a plant. I didn't have any purpose for it at the time, but after looking at it in the computer later I decided it would make a nice background image. A little Photoshop resizing and cropping later and there it was gracing the screen of my laptop.

I used to be all over desktop wallpaper. If you look back at old screenshots of mine you see all kinds of fanciful imagery. But somehow that changed. The desktop on my computer at work is still the Apple default, as was my laptop's until just today.
