Still Spring

Still Spring

The rhythms of spring have been trying to take hold of the landscape but it feels rushed this year, lopsided. This or I have not been looking closely enough. Why is it that spring and fall go by so quickly?

In light of the all too depressing news today in Boston I thought I would post a couple of hopeful photos here on 50ft. Speaking of which, I can’t understand the compulsion to destroy or kill. The amount of unsettled emotion that would have to build up inside someone to compel them to do such a thing would have to be as heavy as the moon strapped to their back. How will we ever evolve as a race on this earth if we can never seem to understand seemingly basic compassion to our fellow man. It seems so simple of the surface yet so immensely complex due to the fragile nature of our own intelligence. I don’t know, as much as I dwell on these things there is never a conclusion reached, only a melancholy that lingers in the back of my mind as I whiteness the selfish nature of others in this world that seem to be oblivious to the fact that vengeance is hollow and does not truly exist. But there will always be conflicting opinions, always compromises to negotiate, always emotions to untangle… It’s an endless meandering philosophical rabbit hole I am stepping into here so I will leave it at that. Just know that I feel for those close to the sadness, I’m sure for many of you out there is must feel infinite right about now.

Heres to sunnier days.

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 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 and give a credit to 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!
