For a reason difficult to comprehend, this photo makes my mind wander towards the iconic portrait of Igor Stravinsky by Arnold Newman. You could be puzzled – so am I. Perhaps the link is in the outline of the wall against the sea, reminiscent of a shape of a grand piano, and the rhythmic declination of the stairs lends itself to a parallel with a keyboard. I like this image, as it combines the structure of line and chiaroscuro with an open view of the sea, where you eye can rest in peaceful contemplation.
