Photo of the day – Mediterranean minimalism

What simple beauty there is in today’s Photo of the Day! It was taken by Genoa-based Flickr user Giovanni Fusco in Provence. The nearly monochromatic paint job, the light, and the battered shutters all create a classic sort of image, something out of a 1960s French film. The aesthetic here is plain and workaday, a kind of Mediterranean minimalism; as such, Fusco’s image depicts a less obviously charming side of Provence.
