It’s Bliss: behind the iconic Windows XP photo

Although it will forever be associated with Windows XP, Bliss was actually the by-product of a love story. It was a regular Friday afternoon in 1996 when photographer Charles O’Rear took the drive through California’s wine country to see his then-girlfriend Daphne.

Chuck, as he introduces himself in conversation, has since married Daphne. Bliss, meanwhile, has gone on to become one of the world’s most iconic photographs, chosen as the default wallpaper of Microsoft’s operating system.
