Un giorno sono andato a fotografare il castello di Burgos e cercando un punto elevato sono salito con fatica, con tutta la mia pesante attrezzatura compreso un grosso cavalletto, su uno scosceso costone che sovrasta il piccolo paese omonimo, mentre armeggiavo per inquadrare al meglio il castello un pastore che pascola le pecore nei terreni sottostanti mi vide e si avvicinò dicendomi “Ma lei la conosce la leggenda del fantasma di Don Blas?” e io “No mai sentita” Allora gliela racconto io, un mio antenato pastore anche lui, un giorno in cerca di una pecora smarrita, entrò casualmente nei sotterranei del Castello, mentre vagava nella penombra dei corridoi delle rovine, il suo piede urtò qualcosa. Aveva con se dei fiammiferi e un piccolo quadernetto su cui annotava le sue magre uscite, con i fiammiferi accese qualche foglio per farsi luce e con grande meraviglia vide che sul pavimento c'era un paiolo ricolmo d'oro. Stava per afferrarlo per portarlo via quando improvvisamente si sentì un boato, la terra e le pareti iniziarono a tremare. Il mio parente che si chiamava Ciccittu ricordatosi della leggenda del fantasma di Don Blas che aveva sentito da bambino, fuggì immediatamente terrorizzato. Raggiunse il paese e si recò subito dal parroco pregandolo di leggergli le sacre scritture per liberarlo dallo spavento. La storia raccontata da Ciccittu incuriosì il prete al punto che quella sera stessa si recò al castello in compagnia del sacrestano. Con i paramenti sacri, l'acqua benedetta e i libri necessari per gli esorcismi i due religiosi si incamminarono verso il castello con l'intenzione di impadronirsi del tesoro custodito nelle sue stanze. Seguendo le indicazioni di Ciccittu raggiunsero il tesoro, ma una volta di fronte al prezioso paiolo il sacrestano non seppe resistere alla tentazione di afferrarlo. Come le sue mani toccarono il recipiente apparve il terribile fantasma di Don Blas. Il prete si adoperò immediatamente per pronunciare le formule sacre che lo avrebbero scacciato, ma non fece in tempo e il fantasma riversò una pioggia di fuoco sui due malcapitati bruciandoli all'istante. Da allora, per quanto si sa, nessuno si è mai più cimentato nell'impresa. Io da questo posto dove ci troviamo adesso, all'imbrunire, vedo sulle mura del castello una figura scura che mi fa rabbrividire nonostante io non abbia paura di niente, non ci crede? Aspetti che scenda la sera e vedrà, si voltò e camminando lesto si recò al suo gregge che pascolava poco più in basso, io ho pensato che stesse farneticando comunque ho aspettato l'imbrunire ma niente non vedevo nulla, allora ho preso la mia attrezzatura e sono andato via, però la storia mi rimuginava in testa e sono ritornato su quel posto altre volte e sempre niente me ne andavo infreddolito dicendomi che ero proprio scemo a credere a quella storia, alla quarta volta quando stavo per andare via perché le tenebre incombevano nell'aria frizzante e pungente l'ho visto che si ergeva sugli spalti con la sua figura imponente e terribile, un brivido mi è corso giù pere la schiena con le mani tremanti sono riuscito a fare una fotografia ma subito dopo il fantasma è scomparso, ero incredulo e ancora tremante anche per la gelida serata raccattai le mie cose e senza neanche riguardare se avevo effettivamente fotografato un fantasma scesi il pendio e ripartì lesto per casa mia. Alcuni penseranno che questa è una storiella che mi sono inventato, no questa è una storia vera.

You are an extraordinary fairy-tale, both with photography and with the written story. Your ability to create suggestions, with words and images, continues to amaze me.
I realize that you are inaugurating a genre in itself, effective and original: The fable told and photographed.
and you're doing it convincingly. You're a big one.
useless to do technical analyses. The fable is beautiful and powerful like that.

Heartfelt thanks my friend you have had an important part in this involution and I am grateful, but do not even disdain to return to photograph the beautiful girls who are less demanding than the pursuit of ghosts :-D

Wow that beautiful, the story gives the creeps and at this point also the photo that makes the idea, with that blue-violet atmosphere and with those clouds. I believe you, but even if it wasn't true, you would have been doubly good at believing it. Anyway you're a great friend, a world of compliments.

Dear Emme.. " Maybe someday I'll come down with you in those dungeons, but go ahead you " .. I would never allow myself to steal my landlord's honor :-D.. And not even the treasure!
PS: In the Tower.. on the top right, there seems to be an interesting face, maybe it is the key to the mystery?? :-D
