a lovely quote on photography

I used to have this quote at the bottom of my blog, but since I removed it, I thought I wanted to share it in a blog post. It's so true and so beautifully written. I did the translation myself from Italian.

"Photography is not a fleeting passion, it's not an infatuation, it's not a crush.

Because once you are taken by it, once it grabs you, it will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Maybe you will neglect it from time to time, maybe even for a long period, but then you will return to it, because you know it is yours and yours alone.

Because the photo you have taken, or will take, belongs to you: it represents what you saw, felt, sensed in one particular moment, which can almost never be repeated."

(Original text in Italian taken from National Geographic Italia).
