Mid0nz: Sherlock's Danger Night

I'm mid0nz. This blog explores BBC Sherlock from a 44 year old fangirl's perspective. Sometimes subject matter & the occasional reblog are NSFW. I'm obsessed with cinematography, the 221B set & props, and the soundtrack. Sometimes there are otters.

MOTTO: "Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes.)"

Who I Follow
The Real Lost Vermeer is the Museum Guard’s Bedroom. 
There’s a lovely transition from the poster advertising “The Lost Vermeer” to the museum guard’s empty bedroom. The composition of this scene is an homage to the master painter. Look at the parallels between Vermeer’s “The Astronomer” and the museum guard’s messy room. The guard’s passion is astronomy, remember, and art is just his job.
Vermeer’s signature: the light source- a single window shining from above at an angle.
Dimmed or stark lighting conditions
Intricate drapery, textiles (Note the drape on the right side of the bedroom’s door.)
Painter of everyday life of middle class people
Use of mirror in composition (Notice Sherlock’s and Watson’s reflections.)
The museum guard/ astronomer is obviously missing, but his telescope fills in for the globe in the Vermeer painting.
