Pipesmoking Desktop Backgrounds: Revisited

Here at Smokingpipes, we photograph each pipe individually, whether new or estate, so our clients have the most accurate representation of the minute details inherent in each pipe they consider. But along with product photography, we create some pretty neat banners and images for the site, blog, and social media as well.

A few years ago we decided to share these lifestyle-focused images in the form of high-resolution desktop and mobile backgrounds. It's been a minute, we know, but we've recently revived the project, and will continue to share our favorite shots and artwork with you all. In this post, you'll find nine unique images, split between desktop and mobile orientations and available for download in two high-resolution formats. They're ready for you to use however you'd like. Feel free to download and set them as your desktop or phone background, or print them out and hang 'em on your wall.
