Leaf and raindrops is a nice wallpaper image resource.

Socksoff is a personal, non-commercial site, no pop-ups, pop-unders, banners or those pesky little ad’s that float across the screen. It first went live on 12th June 2004 with just a small collection of links, and has grown into what it is today, still a small collection of links.
