My Window


Should I make this bottom one here a desktop? I spun around in my chair after the sun had set and was graced with this wonderful subtle light peaking through my window this evening so I pulled out the 5D and was lucky enough that it was not darker yet so I didn’t have to deal with the tripod. I already have a desktop of these cutouts in my window but the sunset just made this too nice to pass up a shot. I hope this streak of shooting on a more regular basis keeps up. I never tire of the sound of a shutter.

UPDATE: Click or right click here for the desktop of the bottom image and enjoy !
UPDATE TWO: I have added the first image as well in the zip so simply re-download it if you would like that one as well.

    I will give this a desktop size download when I have the chance then and simply update this post with a link to it when I do. And seriously, when am I going to quit forgetting to fix the positioning on those smile faces…

    I happily stumbled upon your site today and fell in love with your work, style and online presence. Your photography is remarkable, therefore…I am remarking: “Well done!” Thanks for the inspiration.

    Peace and Love,

    hello john,i subscribed your rss feed.but since june i cann’t see your pics from rss reader.it’s inconvenient for me.i guess if you can incluede full text in your feed?
    thx a lot

    First, Kerri and Antoine, thank you for the kind words, very much appreciated!

    Also, nuyang, I was experimenting with the feed in this way because sometimes I prefer images be seen in the original context of the site rather than jumbled together in an RSS reader :) But really, I post what I post here for the readers to enjoy and therefore they have a say in how the site operates and I have switched it back to full text in the feeds. Sorry for any inconvenience.

  10. john - September 1, 2009 at 12:38 pm

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!
