However, when I need quick reference images when I'm writing, Google Streetview only takes me so far and taking a 30-minute bus trip to get a look at a building or street corner isn't the best use of my time. So every so often I go out on my dayjob's "weekend" and take photographs of various locations. I thought I'd share some today, as kind of a sneak peek at what I'm working on, without having to say anything about the plot. I'm not really paranoid. Honest.
Images after the cut, because this post is longer than normal and rather pixel-heavy. (And I have no clue how to get rid of the underlining. Sorry.)

So yeah. There you go. Not the best aesthetic photos in the world (that'll be another post), but they give me an idea of looks, layout, and mood for most of my settings. Hopefully they'll give you much of the same, or at least prove interesting, give insight into my thought process, and get you more interested in my novel.
Ah, who am I kidding again?
