It Takes Two


Many of you remember my trip to Seoul and the reason I traveled there was to be with YoungDoo so we could spend more time together after our trip to India. This time around she has come over to the states to spend time here with me. I have mentioned we will be traveling together on a road trip around the country and assuming my car makes it we will start north and head west and circle back around through the southwest. We have a loose idea of the general areas we will be traveling but nothing too definite. I guess I can go ahead and mention that we don’t have a large budget while traveling and any readers around the US that have suggestions for us or even get together for a drink if we are near by let me know sometime in the next couple of weeks and we will see what happens. I know its commonly thought of as a risky gesture to make but honestly, I have a lot of confidence in my readers and their non craziness ;) At any rate, I’m sure you will be seeing more about the trip soon. I also have two 50ft radio mixes to put together, two reviews, and a short article I have notes to write so hopefully there will be plenty of great things coming your way here on 50ft in the coming few months.

At any rate, the photo here was taken on my last day in Seoul, its YoungDoo and I and our all too cute matching shoes we had bought a day or two earlier. I thought It would make for a nice lighthearted image to share with everyone as a wallpaper. If you would like to have a look at some of her photography, she is really pretty amazing and I often stare at awe at her abilities, you can check out her flickr stream here.

To download the wallpaper size image simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE to download a zip containing three resolutions, a high resolution desktop wallpaper as well as crops for the iPhone and iPad. Those can also be found below for those in need of direct access on their devices. Please mind the terms of use in the zip file which clearly state that no commercial use is allowed as is re-hosting of the full resolution wallpapers, simply use the image above to share and link back here please. I really greatly appreciate everyones ongoing support and I promise you that things will only get better as time more forward.

    Not sure if you’re visiting NYC/brooklyn but I’d definitely like to buy you guys a drink. You’ve definitely inspired me to get back into analog photography and I have really enjoyed fiftyfootshadows for a while now. Cheers!

    You’re welcome in Boston, MA, and I definitely recommend checking out couchsurfing.org :)

    Hi John,
    Having done a West-to-East roadtrip with my wife in July (Seattle-San Fran-Seattle-DC), I can honestly second Jeff’s suggestion. Couchsurfing can get you free lodging, and most importantly, great company. You should probably contact potential hosts a day or more in advance, especially in smaller towns, though.
    If you’re seriously worried about the car, you can also checkout autodirveaway.com – they’re good if you only have a general idea of where you want to go.
    That said, I’m sorry I’m not in the US and won’t be able to get a drink with you, but if you’re ever in Poland, let me know :)

    Sometimes it only takes one…
    … but chiefly because the other one can’t wear Chucks.

    If you make it to Western WA drinks are on me.

  9. Neil - October 14, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    If you’re ever in England let me know.

    Aside from that have a good trip ;)

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!
