Let The Wind

Let The Wind

Relax, let the wind take you where it wants you to go. This is what was written along with this image when I posted it over on Yesterday was only a while back with a handful of other images from a day spent out on a lake with YoungDoo and my brother. This is the same lake I often find myself exploring in one way or another and now that the weather has warmed up a bit we can find new areas via boat that are not accessible by foot. This time out we came across a whole colony of turtles and a number of other kinds of wildlife enjoying the spring day as much as we were. 

I love having the 5D with me everywhere I go now. Still after a few months of daily images I still don’t mind carrying it along with me, work, the lake, into restaurants and grocery stores, anywhere and everywhere its slung over my shoulder ready to catch anything that may be interesting. Of course there are days when nothing pops up but more often than not there are still moments I find that are fun to explore with the camera. It will surely be more interesting to visit the day to day process of this project after a good six months of shooting. 

The image above was well received and loved over on Tumblr so I thought there would be plenty of you who would enjoy this as a desktop image as well. Something to remind you that there is more to life than the screen you are staring at right now. Enjoy!

    John, please try to give the old camera photo you put up on YWO (tagged canonet) as a wallpaper… that’s one of my recent favorites… love it

    The last three wallpapers have been stellar. Not a drastic change from your previous stuff (all of your shots have personality), but these seem to have a particular feel to them. Thanks and keep up the amazing work

    Absolutely gorgeous! You can feel the temperate air, the wind, the sun. Awesome work as usual.

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!
