Thank you again!

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-09-02
Watch Your Back by ~Andrew-23

Aside from being an amazing photographer with a wonderful gallery, this picture exudes quite an underlying message that the suggester noticed and wrote. She says, "It is unbelievably dangerous to even take a walk during the day, not to mention to take one during the night. It doesn't count if we are alone or if we have company, it isn't safe, not out there and not even inside our homes, no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves that bad things can't happen to us. There are dramatic things happening even as we speak, and there are so many lives destroyed that will never be mended again. Why did we reduce humanity to this? I wonder if people still know the true sense of the notion "humanity" anymore. Why did we allow our world to become such a deserted place? Yes, there are almost 7 billion people on our planet, and, yet, we are loners. Let's think about our actions and realize that only together we can make things work. We aren't enemies, we are one!"

Great Picture! I would love to use it as a background for my band. Is that okay? Do you have a higher resolution version, you could send me?

Much appreciated!

Thank you! 

I used it as the background in the "cover image" for this episode of our design podcast: "Helvetic"
helveticpodcast.com/2017/01/10…

the image link is:
helveticpodcast.com/wp-content… (this was an illustration of the title, where an artist becomes good at one particular thing, and ultimately becomes a 'one trick pony')

Hope you like how we used it. :)

Looks nice. I wish I had the full sized version so you could crop it without having it be so pixelated but it still looks good.

This photo is fantastic! I would like to use it in a poster advertising the 2016 One Page Dungeon Contest. I have created the poster, but have not submitted it to the organizer of the contest for use. The poster is in the link.

Ahhh I know where this is. haha. My friends and I went there late one night and hung out on our way back from a day on the town, and we chilled there until our friends got uncomfortable. This is near chinatown. 

I remember saying "This reminds me of the alley from the beginning of Batman." (The one from 1989)
Then I poorly imitated the minor character, "I'm tellin ya man... a giant bat!"

Yup. I spend a good amount of time around South Station, though typically my friends and I hang out more along the commons and copley. And we frequently head to Kenmore/Fenway for burgers at Tasty Burger

This is really a great pic!  The mood it evokes is palpable.  It really is true: a picture is worth a thousand words.  I would like to use this pic on my website as a background image.  I will, of course, give you credit for it and link back to your website, if applicable.  Great work with the camera!

Thank you very much! I do believe the mood of the photo is what makes it special. I will admit I didn't do a very good job fundamentally with the camera settings but the alleyway and scene were so special that it made up for it.

I would love to see what you can do with it. Lots of people have used it. Let me see it when it's done!
