Can You hear Me?

can you hear me?

I was just looking through the images in Aperture from the past month or two and realized I have built up a number of great photos that would fit well around here as wallpaper images. I would love to start posting more but still have been very busy with work and spending time with YoungDoo while she is here. We will be leaving this weekend for our grand road trip if all goes according to plan but I hope to get a couple of posts in before then. Those of you who wrote offering to get together while we are traveling, I was happy to hear from you and will write everyone back soon to let you know if we will be coming close by or not. Our plans will be loose as we set out. There has been a minor setback in the trip as a whole though as my car found it’s way into a shop bill that ended up being half the budget I had for the trip! Agh! We will sort out the implications of this and see how things go and see how far we can get but it’s still exciting all the same.

    Inspired by Porcupine Tree’s Deadwing?

    I like this wallpaper a lot.

    To the person snapping photos and posting them on this website:

    you are THE picasso of digital age…. your talent resonates with mother nature’s creativity…

    in simple words, you’re a fucking genious.

    Thanks so much for the kind words guys!

    Jonas, I am not familiar with that after looking it up just now I can clearly see the similar idea at play :)

    Carlos, if we drive through that area I will defiantly let you know!

    Suhas, thank you so much for saying such things, it means a lot! Hopefully I will get to come back to india next year!

    Welcome! and since i was born and brought up here, I’d like to recommend two places here in south India which i think you’d love to snap… i myself recently visited these places and i don’t believe after staying here for 22 years, i hadn’t visited them all this while. Both are loaded with history.

    1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halebidu
    (Temple is almost 800 – 900 years old and EVERY INCH of this temple is loaded with sculptures)

    2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hampi
    (It has far too much history and theater inspiring stories and don’t even get me started about the architecture. there is a place with pillars which make ‘do re me’ sounds. the killer part – pillars are made of stone!)

    if you see these places you’ll enjoy it! I’ve seen Pompeii only in the internet but i think these give Pompeii a run for glory!

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!
