Another exciting entry in my dirty wooden floor corner series. Some of you may recognize one of these from my flickr page and now you can have one of your very own! I just really like these sunglasses and the light from this old window was a perfect compliment to them I thought. I believe these were my grandmothers sunglasses and have a nice vintage look and surely some sentimental value to some. I just love the color the light casts through them onto this brown floor and this was one of my favorite things to shoot in this space… More from this series is yet to come so just keep checking back over the week for more!

Because these are similar in context I have decided to simply release them as a desktop pack so you can download them all in one click and make your pick in the comfort of your own time and space. Please please please respect my terms of use and dont use these for any sort of commercial use. I love putting these images up for everyone but it makes it hard for me to do this when I find people using them for profit without asking me… details in the zip download which is this link right here.

Also, as always, enjoy!

    I love everything about this series except for the glasses themselves. The lighting, the color, the shadows, the wood floor. These would make excellent desktops. I find the style of the glasses very ugly though… something I am having a hard time getting past. Probably sounds silly, but I am very particular about my desktop pictures. I would love to see these reshot with a different set of specs.

    Hi wade, I can understand the dislike of the style of glasses. The idea behind the series of photos with this nice wooden floor and the strange objects was brought on by a big move and a lot of really random old things were uncovered during this move and this space seemed perfect for these kinds of strange things which were mostly just old junk I found around. If I had a nicer pair of glasses to shoot then I would be happy to give it a go but I dont really have any around. I will be releasing a few more objects photographed in this space as desktops in the next week or so so perhaps there will be something else you will enjoy a bit more!

    thanks for the comment though, always nice to have some constructive criticism.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself.

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.

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!
