Flickr Spotlight

I have decided to start what I hope to become a monthly or perhaps bi-monthly series of posts that feature other photographers. The idea is to increase exposure for the artists featured and give readers a new desktop or two. To start this off I could not think of anyone more perfect for it than long time contributor Fabian Gewheller. Fabian used to give photos to twistedsun.net, my old project, for use as desktops and I was always happy to post them. I have to say that he has come a long way since then and his new images are simply fantastic. Its been great to watch his style develop and grow over time and see him experiment with all sorts of different approaches while still holding a feel of his own.

I am more than happy to present a handful of photos that I have selected and packed up as desktops for everyone. I was lucky and he let me choose a lot of them which I am really happy about because they are all nothing short of wonderful and I’m sure everyone will enjoy them as much as I do. I also encourage you to visit his flickrstream HERE to see more of his beautiful work. Fabian, I am posting this before I ask you but if you have anything you would like to say to the visitors of the site please, let me know and I will add it to the post!

As with all the images I post here, these are not for commercial use! The terms state that they are to be used for your own personal use only and because this is a guest here lets be extra courteous please. :) To Download an image simply click or right click the image and save the zip file wherever you want to save it or click/right click here to download a zip of all eight desktops. Enjoy and please leave a comment if you like the images or if you like the idea of these spoghtlights!

    It would be nice with a single ZIP :s Think you can fix that? I usually download everything, in fact. ;)

    Very good idea! I used to download desktops images from twistedsun and I am happy to discover the people behind the work. Thanks a lot and congrats to Fabian!

• Enjoy the images! It’s a labor of love, thanks for your support!

If you help me out with these I will be able to keep doing what I love to do. Thanks again, really, for your support and understanding. -J

All of the images contained within this website, fiftyfootshadows.net, are property of, John Carey unless otherwise posted. 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!
