Warming up to Valentine’s Day with this noir-esque image:

I’m quite pleased with this; it was tempting to make it a nearly all-black image, with just a couple of white outlines, but I think that would have killed it. I’d also toyed with depicting a kiss but going for this moment instead felt more subtle.

In other news I’d like to thank The Maya Guesthouse Project and Kearney at A Detailed House for liking my Spire image. The Maya blog follows the progress of the construction of Europe’s first straw-bale hotel, while Kearney’s blog documents her house design and renovation projects. Both blogs are really quite insightful and are well worth investigation.
