Just want to share this info I've learned through Ubergizmo.com

Never thought it was like that.

Do you remember this image:



Quote
If you’ve seen the photograph above before, don’t worry – you’re not the only one. According to reports online, over a billion people have seen this photograph since it was published back in 2002. For those of you wondering where you’ve come across the image, it’s been part of Windows XP’s Luna theme that came default with a lot of computers. The photograph, entitled Bliss, was taken when former National Geographic photographer Charles O’Rear was at a rest stop driving through the wine region of Napa Valley in California.

The photograph was sold to Microsoft at an undisclosed “extraordinary” price, and you could say the rest is history. If you’re interested in checking out more of the photographer’s work, you can head here. Honestly I always thought Bliss was a digitally created image and not a photograph – I guess I was wrong. How many of you are still using this photograph as your desktop wallpaper?

Rhage: But you'll always be Butch to us, as well as hard-ass. Smart-ass. Royal pain in the ass... I think as long as there's an ASS in there, it'll be accurate.
Zhadist: How about bASStard?

^LOL :P

Yeah I thought so too. This was just the first time that I've learned it was an actual photograph of a place. Im just so surprise to find out.

These are just small facts but the impact of knowing them, priceless.  ;D

:) I recognized it right away and for some reason never thought it was anything but an actual picture.  Infact I think it may still be on my old pc I don't use anymore.
