‘Nocturne’ can refer to paintings of night scenes but is so much more. Dark sounds of Wagner, the romantic piano music from Chopin, the revelation of secrets, the soft embrace of a hand…
“Nocturne” by Rosario Castellanos
Time is too long for life;
For knowledge not enough.
What have we come for, night, heart of night?
Dream that we do not die
And, at times, for a moment, wake.
The night brings out a special mood, hard contrasts unable to hide the softness of the human spirit.
My camera just an excuse to come closer, longing to connect.
