Crossing

I was digging through photos that I took in Munich and fond a few that I thought would make nice desktops. I was also thinking to myself that I should go out and shoot some minimal desktops, textures or really minimal photography of some sort. Those sorts of photos work so well for the concept of a desktop I think and are easily paired with multiple monitors and whatnot. You know, I would be happy to offer multi screen desktops but to be honest, I just like this simplified approach to offering photos as desktops and I think it would just confuse everything. Sorry, this has nothing to do with anything really. Just writing something here to have something here at least because I don’t have too much to say about the image this time around.

To download the desktop simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE to download the attached zip and please, mind the terms of use, I would really appreciate that. Some photographers freak out about giving out their work this way or without a big huge watermark and to be honest, I often wonder about it but usually my desire to share simply outweighs my nervousness about people stealing my images. I trust people, maybe to much sometimes but… yep. Enjoy!

    I really admire what you’re doing here, not just sharing high-resolution photographs (which are excellent) but doing so without obnoxious and pretentious watermarks.

    I realize photographers are entitled to have their work protected by copyright, but I am astonished by how many will eagerly soil their own (often mediocre) work with efforts to cripple the experience of viewing it.

    I stumbled upon your blog a week or two ago, and since that day I check your site daily and hope for new posts. I would also like to mention You Dissapear which I also check daily to discover new music.
    You’re doing a great job and just keep them posts coming, on both sites ;-).

    daragh- I appreciate it, i have always hated watermarks, just so ugly. I think my compromise of my tiny website stamp in the bottom right corner that most people probably dont see anyhow was a good way to handle it. I am aware its a risk but still, its just the digital age we live in and a side effect of it. So unless I find someone using an image obviously then I usually try and ignore it.

    robbe, thanks for visiting! I post as often as I can and usually I like to post once a day on both sites at least but most often I do it when I have time. I hope to get a couple new things up today… Thanks again and I hope you continue to enjoy the site!

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!
