In your bag number 91, Gary Benson
Not a lot of details with todays bag. All I know is that Gary is from the UK. But he has provided a lovely bag-shot for us. Gary, if you would like to add anything then please let us all know about you.
Greetings from the UK! I just found the “in your bag” feature you have going and thought I’d send one in. This is more or less what I haul around with me everywhere.
From left to right (sort of):
Timberland bag. Not a specific camera bag, but made of heavy canvas so it doesn’t crumple when you put small heavy objects (ie cameras!) in it. Terrible fasteners!
Leica M6 TTL with 35mm Summicron ASPH. I basically haven’t used anything else since I got this a year ago. Always loaded with HP5.
Leica SF20 flash, with funky neoprene case to stop it getting smashed. This is a new toy this past few weeks.
Mildly padded case I got with a Horizon 202. It keeps the Leica in the same place in the bag so I can grab it easily.
Chapstick. I spent all weekend in Brussels with dry lips and had no idea I was carrying this around!
Phone (HTC Hero).
Book to write in, with pen.
Light meter (Gossen Digisix). Probably taught me more about exposure than anything else :)
Book I’m reading (it’s good!)
Lens cloth and pre-moistened lens cleaning tissues.
Spare film (HP5)
Self-timer. Really wish Leicas still had them!
Spare batteries for various things.
Tissues and headache tablets.
Thanks for this Gary, if you have some links or anything then please send them to us.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot.
