I took this photo in a cathedral not far from where we live. I love candles, I find them mesmerizing, and with such an impressive number of them the effect is just magical.

I do feel at peace in a church, the hushed atmosphere, the fabulous energy created by all these prayers, I like to sit down on one of the benches and stop for a moment, taking a break from the whirlwind of modern life.

And of course, I always take the time to light a candle too.
