Bamboo floor of the outside walkway at the tea house of the Murin'an gardens, taken last summer when my friends KFC and Verena visited Kyoto.
The next two are stones on the beach of Honohoshi Cove on Amami Ooshima, of the Amami island group in the far south of Japan, about where the East China Sea becomes the Pacific Ocean. The curved stones make a surprisingly calming sound as the waves wash up and down them.

The final one today is also from our trip to the Amami island group, a beach on the southern tip of Kakeroma-jima filled with bits of dead coral.

Over the years, I've posted a lot of desktop-background pics, including other sort-of-abstract ones like these:
· Bamboo Fence
· Vine on a Bamboo Fence
· Wall of “Unrolled” Bamboo
· “Buncha Wet Stones”
I don't actually use these for my own desktop background (I use this moss-and-fern mountain path at the moment), but somehow I feel that these somewhat plain, repeating abstract images make for good backgrounds. I don't know that anyone actually uses them, so perhaps I'm just wasting my time.
I'll share those Photoshop scripts in an upcoming post.
