In the meantime, here's something for the photographers out there to try:
- take a photo of the scene behind your computer
- load it as your desktop image
- align computer and tweak the photograph until it looks like your screen is transparent
There's a large flickr gallery of photos like that, some brilliantly executed. Top prize in my book must go to this one, as much for getting the cat to sit still for 3 seconds, as for the conception and composition. I haven't tried this myself yet, but it looks like a real challenge.
Another cool link: song lyrics rendered in outline form. Like this one. Hard to describe, but the mismatch (or shall we say cognitive dissonance?) is quite amusing.
