And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Y ahora aquí está mi secreto, un secreto muy simple: solo con el corazón se puede ver correctamente; Lo que es esencial es invisible a los ojos

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, El Principito

So, do you think I saw with my heart?

Entonces, ¿crees que vi con mi corazón?

Strangely transparent, they seemed like windows to a world beyond, but however long I peered into their depths, there was nothing I could see

There are a lot more windows here and here.

*Shot with Fujifilm X100F with 23mm (35mm fixed frame equivalent) fixed lens, ISO 200, 1/140s at f/5.6 with some added mystery applied with Affinity Photo which, along with Affinity Designer, I’m exploring as a credible Photoshop CC replacement*

the time to hesitate is through, no time to wallow in the mire
– lyrics from light my fire, the doors

I shot this image last night whilst shooting one of the many Semana Santa processions in the city of Salamanca – more on that soon at salamancastreets.com.

In this case, the night was dark, but the city was lit by many candles, streetlights and the smiling faces of the women, men and children who packed the streets until the early hours of the morning.

The Doors’ Light my fire, and in particular the instrumental version to which I have linked, seems also to capture some of the same spirit. For me, anyway.

This shot was a lucky capture, the Plaza Mayor captured in half-light.
