Juxtaposition

Normally I update both my monitors's desktop art at the same time, with two images that match. But this time I just updated one. And I just was struck by the odd and funny juxtaposition of the two images, the soft and warm drawing on the left, against my stark and cold photo on the right.

I like that one on the left. Who did that?

Oops, never mind! Scrolling down solved that mystery. :-)

Ya! I "feel" it; Brrr! ;-) (seriously, though, I "got" it; and...GLAD that you are able to "feel" same! :-D

Thanks for sharing this w/us! Great example! :-D

Apple. It's their standard 32-incher a few years back.

LOL!

Thirty-inch, I believe, but otherwise quite correct. Sadly no longer available, double-sadly if I want a new Apple monitor I have to step down in resolution. (I know others make 'em, and I'm sure they're good, it just bugs me.)

Yeah, and there's also the issue of glossy screen. Reportedly some people like it, but I wonder if it is a good idea to have images of your lighting fixtures and bookcases superimposed on top of your work.

Yes, it's an issue, though it does enhance contrast and clarity.

I would have thunk they could do more effective anti-reflex coating like on camera lenses. Perhaps it would hike the price, being done on such a large surface.

Let me tell you why that's not only not funny, it's painfully unfunny. They're BOTH BY APPLE.

Or as TC might say "Let" me tell you "why" that's "unfunny"..... :-D !!!!

Come on, man, that's the cream of the joke! "I like the left one..."!

I didn't find it particularly funny but that guy needs to start smoking dope or something! ;-)

Speaking of which, according to Bored to Death, New Jersey has legalized it. I still find it odd that in this country the laws can be so different from place to place. I mean the place where they make Jack Daniels is a "dry" county so you can't buy or drink it there. Prostitution is legal in Nevada, but not everywhere in Nevada - some counties it's legal, in others it's not.
