Where’s John?

So, just where have I been lately? Posts have been scarce but for good reason. First off, I have been working on a structural update for the site that I have been planning for quite some time and suddenly had reason to jump in head first and see what happens. The only problem here is time has not been on my side as of late. July is typically one of the busiest work months of the year coupled by a large amount of paperwork and planning involved in getting YoungDoo stateside in the fall has filled my days beginning to end. But wait, that’s not all! I have also been in the process of moving into a fresh new apartment which has taken any extra time I may have had and hid it away from me.

The good news is that I have started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. As things start to settle I will be able to start putting time into 50ft once again and work towards the fall and winter where I hope to make the site better than ever with a resolved focus and organization that will lay the foundation for the future.

I do my best to avoid writing posts of this type these days but I felt the slow posting has left many of you wondering what has been going on. I appreciate those of you who sent notes checking in on things! With any luck things should be back to normal here soon enough. Thanks so much for your ongoing support and patience as I navigate through life. Here’s to the future!

    Went through the Visa process with my husband a couple of years ago. If you haven’t found it yet, the website http://www.visajourney.com is THE online resource. Specifically the forums. :)

• Enjoy the images! It’s a labor of love, thanks for your support!

If you help me out with these I will be able to keep doing what I love to do. Thanks again, really, for your support and understanding. -J

All of the images contained within this website, fiftyfootshadows.net, are property of, John Carey unless otherwise posted. The images are distributed as freeware but they are available for personal use only on your personal computer, tablet, or smartphone as your wallpaper image. 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!
