Ten Hearts


I took this photo at a coffee shop the other day simply because I loved the odd mug I was handed. Used the shiny black table and lights of the shop to create what I immediately figured would become a fun desktop to post. The lens used is not my typical 50mm, rather its an old 35mm that I sold to my brother a couple of years ago and miss so much after using it this week that I think I will be selling here on the site and wherever else I can post it for sale so keep an eye out if your interested. Its not a cheap lens but as you have seen around here it can take some great photos heh. Right, as for the desktop..

To download the full size version of the cups here simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE to download the attached zip file which also contains the terms of use so you know that the image is for your personal desktop wallpaper needs only without my permission otherwise. Its tricky keeping track of images these days so I can only hope everyone does their part to help me out with this so I can continue to do this for years to come. Hmmm, I wonder why I don’t put together a book? Why did I not realize that until just now. Anyone who bothered to read this far, any thoughts on that?

    That is the 35 1.4L is it not? Very nice.

    Re the book good idea, a lot of photographers are doing it and releasing their work in this way, it’s one of the amazing things about the web is that people can do this kind of thing now without involving big publishers and art dealers. In fact photography itself has changed so much, now photographers can share their work with so many people so quickly. I digress …. yes you should certainly do a book as long as it’s not too expensive ;)

The images are distributed as freeware but they are available for personal use only on your personal computer, tablet, or smartphone as your wallpaper image. Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on fiftyfootshadows.net to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net. Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
