Your stir-crazy kids competing to build the tallest Lego castle in all the land. Your partner attempting to make a Bon Appetit-worthy breakfast. Your roommate watching Lord of the Rings for the seventh time. Your dog running in circles, desperate for a walk – literally anywhere. All relatively common domestic scenes in quarantine times, yet none are the ideal backdrop for your 9AM work meeting. Understanding this, we’ve set out to bring the (digital) backdrop to you. We’ve collected ten images from recent coverage that transports your virtual-self to an enviable spatial realm no matter your real-time surroundings: all you have to do is right click, save as and upload to the conference app of your choice. Say you don’t find one that suits your fancy here? Check out our first set, and watch this space for more.
