Windows & Doors / Ventanas y Puertas

It is said that eyes are the windows to the soul and mouths are the doors through which our thoughts escape, carried by words into the universe. There is something special about the orifices through which buildings allow light, air and people to penetrate the inner sanctum and intimacy of their interiors. Often as I travel and stroll through the streets of a newly discovered town, my gaze is irresistibly drawn to doors and windows and I get a glimpse of life inside.

Se dice que los ojos son las ventanas al alma y que las bocas son las puertas a través de las cuales se escapan nuestros pensamientos, montados en palabras, al universo. Hay algo especial en estos orificios a través de los cuales los edificios dejan que la luz, el aire o la gente penetren a la intimidad de sus interiores. A menudo cuando viajo y paseo por las calles de un pueblo que acabo de descubrir, mi mirada no puede resistirse a la atracción de las puertas y ventanas que me ofrecen una mirada fugaz e insinuante de la vida de su interior.
