Photographer's Note

On a sunny morning in October, 2013 we took a boat ride from Amalfi to Positano along the famous Amalfi Coast of Italy. Shortly after returning to the United States I posted a photo from Positano, Close Packing Italian Style. In the present photograph I wanted to show the harmony that exists between nature and the local architecture, a harmony to which the architects of the area have long aspired. What might be regarded as impossibly steep and uninhabitable terrain in other lands becomes a welcome challenge for the local architects to produce organic designs for their buildings.

Here the diagonal bands of light and shadows, and a sharp Nikkor lens collaborated in capturing the eye catching scene.

In the attached workshop is a view of the crowded boat that October morning.
