Oct 22, 2009 [b]: Windows XP background in real life



Does it look strangely familiar? That's because it's this:



It's the location of the actual scenery pictured for the Windows XP default background. (Wikipedia has the details.) Apparently it's a Sonoma County, California location and the owner has now decided to put in grapevines. Excellent choice.

The location is also seen in Google Maps Streetview.

Charles OíRear used to pass that hill almost daily between his home in Napa and his wife, Daphne, who lived in Marin County. He always carried his medium format camera.

It was hard even to slow down on highway 12/121. But one day, it must have been in January, he pulled over. After about a month of rain the sun comes up, and there is beautiful green grass. The weather during the winter can change dramatically. A break in the storm. Intense blue sky with cumulus clouds. Maybe later that day it rained.

Blue was an important brand color already in Ď95. Clouds and sky being a common theme in many aspects of the productís identity and collateral. Illustrating potential and opportunity.

Continuing the cloud theme, but with added grounding. The horizon gives a sense of scale to the image. Makes it possible to imagine being there.

Because of the danger of that road and where he was standing, he didnít take a tripod. His camera, when handheld, needed to be shot at least at a five-hundredth of a second. Whatever that translates into on a sunny day. Probably 500 at 5.6.

With property prices in Sonoma reaching $75,000 per acre for bare land, most hills were being developed into vineyards or homes. On this hill grapevines had been planted. But in the early 90ís a Phylloxera bug infested the grapes and made them unusable. The entire vineyard had to be pulled out. For a few years the hill was covered with grass. Green at the time of the photograph.

Are those rugs in the middle of the teletubbies to wipe your feet after stomping one?

No, you use that part as toilet paper.

I thought that was the "B" side of velcro. The "A" side must be attached to the back.

And the spammer's strategy giude sayeth "Choose ye a random post. Any one will do. Agree with it. No-one will notice anything suspicious."

Fools, don't they know the best way to fit in to web discussions is to argue and abuse people at random?
