Potato Crates


I had an audio production job recently and it was in one of the more obscure locations I have worked in for an event, it was inside of a huge storage barn at a potato farm. The stake was marked off and created with these huge wooden potato crates and as soon as I saw them I had this desktop in mind. I ended up making it pretty dark and so I made two versions of it so you have your pick which one you want to use.

In other news, I will be going to Utah for a couple of weeks this month and will be leaving soon for that. During the trip I may or may not be posting on my sites and may take a mental break from posting during the time I am away. I will most likely break that idea and be posting something at some point but thats my plan. So if you don’t notice anything new for a little while then you know why.

To download this desktop simply click or right click here to download the attached zip file containing both versions of the image. Please mind the terms of use and do not use any of the images I provide commercially. Thanks and as always, enjoy!

    But why are there two white lines quite in the middle of the pictures?

    Seems like to short stripes from a brush tool, while holding shift down :D

    nym, I believe that there is light shining through from the other side of them, it was like a wall of them and there were lights on the other side :) funny, it does look like a brush tool!

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!
