It’s spring 2008. British singer Estelle has just released her hit single “American Boy.” In it, she sings, “Take me on a trip, I’d like to go someday.”
It’s spring 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has the world at a standstill. People are stuck at home. The very notion of taking a trip someday seems elusive.
If your wanderlust is strong, here are some custom Zoom backgrounds to tide you over.
Just click the “Download image” link beneath the background you like to open a full-size version in a new tab. Right click on the image to save it to your device, and it’s yours to upload to Zoom. By default, Zoom mirrors your image so our backgrounds will appear flipped to you but display properly to others. (Note: Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, the owner of The Times, is an investor in Zoom.)
