I regularly pass by this house in Saltaire. It is now an office and they leave the lights on in just one room at night. The room has a beautiful turquoise wall and the whole window glows a beautiful blue at night. (The wall used to be an orangey-coral and that gave a lovely warm glow, but I do rather like the blue.) I've faffed about with this photo a bit in Photoshop, just to make it a bit more arty. I can't now remember every step I took but it included getting rid of some tree branches that overlapped the window and spoiled the symmetry, tweaking the hue and saturation a bit and adding a soupçon of poster edges.
One thing that T Becque and I seem to have in common is that we're drawn to windows and doors and generally to shapes in buildings. She makes some wonderful images in her part of the world, Tucson, Arizona, including some great pictures with a Holga camera. If you don't know her blog Thoughts in Images, go there now!!
