My life is still moving at lightning speed and leaving me struggling to find time to connect with the photographic side of my passions. In the mean time, however, I decided to reach out on twitter to find others to contribute to 50ft as guest photographers while I get my creative act back together. This week if all goes according to plan I will have a few new wallpapers brought to you by readers of the site. It’s something I have always loved doing and wanted to do more often so why not catch up and feature some others photographers work among these pages for a while? (If you have something to share then by all means, reach out.)
First up is a friend of mine, Alex MacK from up north in Canada who inadvertently kickstarted the idea of asking for guest submissions while I get settled into this next big phase in my life. He sent me a photograph that he thought would help calm my busy mind and sure enough, it managed to do just that. I always like to share a few thoughts on photos posted here and guest desktops are no different so in Alex’s own words:
“I don’t have a name for the photo. I looked out my basement window this week one morning to see something I honestly don’t know that I had ever noticed before. It was like every blade of grass had its own bead of dew resting on its back. This likely happens all of the time – but being in the basement – the grass was at eye hight, so my perspective was vastly different than a mere glance down from above. I zipped outside, and pressed my whole body down on the ground while still wearing my slippers. It can be really quite awkward to look through the view finder when it is closer to the ground than you can have your eye while still operating the camera with two hands. “
After doing my fair share of awkward poses to frame the image I was after I know exactly what he means. To find more photography by Alex be sure to follow along on his stellar instagram stream here.
Enjoy the new desktop and keep an eye out for more soon from other guest photographers! As always, thanks for stopping by.
