Stravinsky Beat

Reflecting life

Ever since I first visited Paris in 1998 I am hooked on the Stravinsky Fountain next to the Centre Pompidou. Back then I studied art and our professor insisted that we need to know the colourful art style of Niki de Saint Phalle. I couldn’t agree more. Her nanas are spitting images of life.

But when I recently passed the Stravinsky Fountain, I set my camera’s focus on the water reflections, mirroring a glimpse of Parisian life. Not a perfect one, but a beating and swirling one; beating like the pulse of a city that never sleeps and swirling like Igor Stravinsky’s “Feu d’Artifice” (Fireworks).

What can I say? β›²πŸŒŠπŸ’™

Let’s put these reflections into context, shall we?
