'Less is More'

a quote which can be attributed to the German Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It is a phrase that is often used in Modernist, Minimalist circles.  I will argue to the contrary on occasions, that 'Less is a Bore'.  But often, very often, Ludwig's wise words prevail.

This is the photograph I finally decided upon.

Less rings.  Better.
