Every Day Of My Life

I have had requests for these a number of times since sharing the video containing every image taken on my fall road trip and I decided today would be the day to share them. At the end of a day spent exploring Memphis, TN we ended up down by the Mississippi river for the sun set and oh what a great sunset it was. Our time was spend laying out on big rocks and throwing them carelessly into the water as the sun dipped below the horizon. One of those moments in life you imagine will come to mind in your older age, looking back on the warmer times. These photos were taken quickly while walking down to the shore and ended up with that classic sort of fiftyfootshadows feel to them. I knew I had some lovely shots when I noticed the tiny flowers there in the grass, lit up orange just for me. Another world hiding under my feet. Something that does not present itself every day of my life thats for sure. Looking back through these images though I am always reminded how great it is to be able to capture these moments in this way. Each click a time capsule. Love it.

    I’m thinking that you should do a duel monitor desktop. I’m ready for a fresh one since I’ve had an ampersand up for months. Just a thought you could explore the next time your shooting. I really appreciate your photography.

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!
