The bust of Le Corbusier in Roquebrune Cap Martin, where he lived and died.
The world famous Franco-Swiss architect Le Corbusier spent some time in his later years in a small self-designed vacation cabin at the Mediterranean Sea in Roquebrune Cap Martin, just a few kilometres away from Monaco. The bust is located not far from this cabin and from where he was presumably found dead after a swim in the morning in the Mediterranean Sea in 1965.
The area around Roquebrune Cap Martin is very scenic, and I took several excellent photos of the shore and the sea with the spray and rough shore making for a dramatic background with rich saturated colours. The picture of the bust of Le Corbusier on the other hand, taken in the early morning, expresses a calmness and quality, that very much improves from being shown in black and white, supporting the texture and simplicity of the composition.
