I live in Italy and I practice photography from 1993. I started with a Yashica FX-3 super 2000. I currently use a Nikon FE-2 manual.
I like Jules Renard words:
He jumps out of bed early in the morning, and he leaves home only with clear mind, pure heart and body as light as a summer dress. He doesn’t bring with him any supplies. He’ll drink fresh air while walking, and inhale the healthy countryside aromas. He leaves weapons at home and he only opens eyes. Eyes are nets where images imprison themselves.
from 'Natural History' by J. Renard
