Enjoy Your Life

Yes, you read that right, enjoy your life! I love these little cups that are used by many street food vendors around Seoul. You can’t help but feel good eating or drinking from a cup like that right? I was about to toss it in the trash when I realized I could shoot it and share it with everyone because the world needs all the joy they can get right? Right.

To download this moment simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE and save the attached zip. After some thought and strategy I have decided to start offering desktops at 2560×1600 to help out those out there with nice big 30“ or 27” mac desktops AND I am now including cropped versions of the wallpaper for both the iPad (hopefully I am getting these right heh) and the iPhone as well! Pretty exciting I thought. Also included are the tried and true terms of use. Thanks so much for reading and enjoy!

    To begin with… Mi iMac 27´´is now a cooler one.

    This is simple yet very meaningful. I would interpret it as if creator wants to convey the message that don’t worry what happens around yo just enjoy life in your own little ways…….

    I was so excited to find this going through your site! I don’t remember where I found this – some wallpaper site (big surprise, right?) – at a time where I was being to hard on myself and being way too acetic. Seeing this was a reminder that God wanted me to enjoy the life he’s given me not just working for the “mission” at a very difficult time in my life. I just want to encourage you that your picture brought comfort and solace in a hard time. Wonderful work here, keep it up!

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.

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!
