    I'm after a specific image, can anyone help...?

    I'm after a shot of a wall of glass blocks, like the ones attached, but instead of being from angles, I just want a straightforward head on shot.

    I'd like it reasonably sharp & a good size. I've been trawling through desktop & wallpaper sites but I can't seem to find anything.

    Anyone help me out...?

    wow, who would have thought that would be so difficult. i fancy myself lucky and a decent searcher for these things but i got the slip from the large straight on block walls too.

    this was the best i could find and it is still from an angle... click here

    i'll take a peek a little longer but it's not looking good.

    you might be able to take a small picture and tile the image itself to make it appear to be one large glass block wall [shrugs] i can do that for you if you find an image you like that's too small... that is if you don't already know how to anyway. :)

    what about this? it was a quick creation from tiling and sort of rotating a small image of blocks i found.

    click thumbnail to enlarge... and click again once it opens to fully enlarge and clear it up. hope it helps

    Glass Blocks

    Whelp - here are glass blocks - with a few holes in the wall. It is straight on.

    Why were you taking pictures of my house? And how did you get in?

    Hey

    You know, I have to work, too. You should be thrilled that you're only one of the five people I have the time to stalk. Many would consider it an honor to be stalked by the best! :p

    Even if a glass is half full, it's not as good as a half-full keg. :)

    Let he who lives in a glass house cast the first fingerprints.

    No, not quite. I'm after something like the second of the 2 'cobbled' images, but an actual photo, possibly retouched.

    At least 1024 x 768.....

    ?

    Here's a few I've collected from http://www.sxc.hu/ they may have more over there now as well.

    Not quite as big as you wanted, but maybe it will work.

    We have some of those *exact* tiles at my school, but I don't have a digital camera. You see, I used to have one, but I put it on the edge of my balcony and it fell...
