One Shot

As I mentioned in a post before, I went on a short backpacking trip and while I was there shot a few rolls on my Hasselblad. I have developed half of them, the other couple are slide film and have to mail it off or drive it an hour or so to a place that will develop 120 slide film. Until then though I have a couple of rolls of negative film scanned in and found a number of nice shots hiding in there.

This table was left behind, and freshly made from the looks of it, by a scout troop most likely. Typically they should take down things like this that are built but for some reason they left it up and so I went ahead and used it for the three days I was in the valley there. It was great to have a place to prepare food that wasn’t the ground! A nice surprise that made a nice camping trip even better.

I will have more shots posted each day on flickr. (which has a great new layout for viewing photos!)

    This makes me think of the Blair Witch Project for some reason.

    Haha, I do my best NOT to think about that film while out camping but I can certainly see how you thought of it heh.

    Oh hah, I first thought you built that table yourself. I recognise the structure from my old scouting days :)

    Pete, yeah I went through that as well, learned a lot from it too. The group I was in was a very laid back one and more often than not let all of the strict rules of scouting slide. Made it very enjoyable heh. I probably COULD have built it but yeah, just found this one waiting for me ;)

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!
