Can we take a moment to *ooof*?
If this wasn’t a screen shot but a properly taken photographic still, I would *love* to write one of my photo analyses for this. The back-lighting that accentuates the cheekbone, the intense gaze, the framing and use of negative space all make this image stand out and create a very specific look and feel in this “coincidentally capped portrait” of Daniel Miller. After the despicable outcome of the German general election last weekend (I am still reeling, everyone, and I can only say that *I* and 87.3% of all Germans did NOT vote for the Nazis to get into the parliament. I feel disgusted, disappointed and demoralised by the result – but I do have hope that the right-wing AfD will implode and soon be history.) I am not quite in the right mood for a spy thriller with neo-Nazi plotline. But hey, with a spylicious protagonist such as Daniel Miller, I may just be able to overcome my resistance and enjoy at least the display of talent and craft courtesy of Mr Armitage… Even with the close-crop hair-style cum bushy beard not quite up my street, I must admit that Daniel still has got *something* that keeps me watching. Only three weeks til season 2…
In keeping with the spylicious theme, I have got another shrine reveal for you. This is number 4 in the series of thank you shrines after this, this and this. This latest one comes with a beautiful cover that I left untouched…
Spylicious… I thought long and hard about creating a shrine to feature some of Daniel’s rather impressive back views but then shied away from it. Not for lack of material *coughs*. But a front view of one of the most heart-breaking spies ever to grace the small screen, seemed to be slightly safer…
Not too shabby, either, eh? Lucas looks as if *he* did come home “in garlands”.
As usual in these thank you shrines, Mr A greets from the bottom half of the shrine.
And here it is in full glory:
This shrine was created for mooseturds who kindly supported the CelebRAtionWithPurpose. Please join me in also thanking her for her fabulous detective work over on Twitter where she is one of the tireless tweeps who frequently discovers and shares news and updates on all things Armitage. Your work is much appreciated, moose, and I am grateful that you are doing all the work for us ´so that I do not have to spend hours hunting for the latest news…
So, in conclusion – here’s the big question:
Who do *you* find most spylicious? Daniel “The Wall” Miller, or Lucas “Sexy Pecs” North?
Looking forward to your replies. I’ll pass the time by gazing into Daniel’s fathomless eyes… *sigh*
PS: This RAPS reveal concludes the series of thank you shrines. They were designed as a complete body of work and therefore share some similarities. However, they are still all unique, and I hope that the recipients will have lots of fun with them. Here’s a group shot:
