I am looking for a dataset. All I want is just a background photo. It can be a building, a river, or a house. But it must be a natural picture, not a drawn picture. Is there such a data set? It would be better if it contained various environments.

  • In theory, you search images.google.com for "backgrounds", but I'm not sure how well that would work

Another option is to choose certain Collections or tags


There is also an API.
