Orthodox Wallpaper
« on: January 28, 2012, 11:00:36 PM »
Are there any good Orthodox wallpapers out there for the computer? Right now I'm using one I made, and am thinking about making another, but figured I'd ask if there were already some out there before I did. ...?

I usually just use my own photos.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Right, I forgot about the resident professional photographer! I'll have to spend some time looking through your collections... Can you recommend any suitable candidates for a computer/iPad background?

Check out the Great Lent photos of the Pan-Orthodox Vespers. I visited a number of absolutely gorgeous churches.

Check Facebook albums on my page.

Maybe you've even been to some of them. :)

I really miss Asteriktos.

There is a 1.1% chance that my wallpaper is Orthodox.

I do not know why. I only know that I learned that it is possible to write with at least some degree of humility from him. He is a good teacher by example, although on rare occasions he gets grumpy.

Good choice. That was the 5th Sunday of Great Lent, this year.

I will send you a higher resolution tomorrow. :)

No need if it's too much trouble, it looks great as-is. These two were runner-ups ;)...
