Within the first couple of days here in Seoul a little snow storm found its way to our path one night and the cheap transparent umbrella you see here was a shield from the bitter cold wind of the night blowing snow into our faces. Finding it a perfect opportunity for a nice desktop shot I pulled out my damp 5D and snapped a few photos imagining it would make a nice image to share with everyone and sure enough it came out nicely. My time here has been great, I have been staying pretty busy so and I feel like I am starting to get to a point where the training wheels can come off. Its a great city full of a million and a half cute little coffee shops and cafes which is apparently quite trendy around here and its great. its an unexpected thing to find in Korea of all places. I hope to write more as time goes on, my internet connections have been pretty temperamental but hopefully I can get that sorted out and post regularly here. I have sort of half of the internet at the moment, through some roundabout networking tricks but hey, works well enough till it can get fixed.

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!
