I recently changed my desktop background to a picture of a cupcake from Magnolia Bakery from NYC that I took this summer. I don't usually use my own photos as desktop backgrounds, and I usually find images online of birds/trees/leaves/flowers etc. I like pretty, but peaceful images; they are nice to look at, but also not distracting.
This picture of the cupcake is SOO distracting!!! All I want to do it lick the icing right off.. it looks soooo gooooood.
And look how big it is on my screen too.. mmmm, drooling right now.
Do you ever choose desktop backgrounds that distract you?
