The power of light

I know...you're wondering where the furniture is. Sometimes it is more about the architecture, and in this case it is also about the incredible effect natural light can have in a space.

No I'd stand just where the photographer has and muse or perhaps I'd just smile slightly as I rushed past on my way to work! Found in the portfolio of photographer Romain Ricard.
