DC120 Background Images



This page is designed for video cards running in at least high-color mode, and at least 600 pixels across.

All the images on this page were made by me from pictures I took with a Kodac DC120 digital camera. I've been carrying this camera with me everywhere since I got it in August, 1997, and I've gotten into the habit of looking at everything as a potential web background image.

All the images on this page are Copyright © 1998 by John Oswalt, but permission is hereby granted for anyone to use them for any non-commercial purpose. If you use an image as the background on your web page, please give me credit, and send me your URL.

I also have a page of Web background images made from pictures I took in Africa.

Wallpaper in John Muir's house. This image is "dummied down" from the original wallpaper. Its design is more complicated than what you see here, and takes 4 times the area to make a "tiling" image. (Martinez, California)

Wallpaper in John Muir's house. I'm afraid this image doesn't tile very well; the top doesn't match the bottom. The design on the actual wallpaper is quite complicated. A minimal tiling section would be 8 times bigger than the segment I have here, and if I included it all, the file would be too big to use as a background. (Martinez, California)
