I am not too happy with these in their larger sizes because they really are not nearly as sharp as I would want them to be but it is what it is and the need for some new desktops around here outweighs my gripes with my own images. These are film images shot with my Bessa R3M which I have really enjoyed using. Hopefully the slightly blurred appearance of these wont annoy to many of you. The last one here is the one that is the worst of the three because it was actually pretty dark outside at the time and I was shooting handheld at a moderately low shutter speed and and and… Sorry, I am breaking my own rule about talking down about my own work on the site. I hear you should always stay away from self destructive comments but here it is and its that kind of day.

I hope to get out and shoot the remainder of the 120 roll I have loaded and get it developed today or tomorrow but well see how that goes, I also have a roll of 50ISO slide film that I am shooting through a little too quickly but hope to get some good shots out of all the same. In other words, I hope to share more new photos with everyone here soon.

Now, for the desktop versions of these images. Hopefully everyone at least glanced through the text here enough to read this and see that to get the full resolution versions of these as desktops you need to CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE and save the zip file containing the three images above. Please note that these are not to be used for any commercial work without my consent, I appreciate the support from all my readers and Wish you all a great day!

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!
