In your bag number 131, Joel Westworth
A lovely bag today, in fact one type of bag that I love. I have a terrible weakness for Domke waxwear bags, especially when they are filled with such lovely goodies. Check it out.
My name is Joel Westworth, and I live in Sydney, Australia. I like to shoot street, people, I like to document what I see. I like to share that with people. By day I work in camera sales, and by night (mostly) I walk around with a camera. That’s me.
This is my “Day off from work” bag, my solid day of shooting bag.
On an average day I’ll have a Leica w/35mm and a compact. Olympus XA2 or a Ricoh GR1 currently. There’s always at least one camera in there though. This kit is also what I’m planning to take to Japan next month, but that could change. Too many decisions!
The bag is a Waxwear Domke F2. Perfect size, it will fit pretty much everything you need, and more. There’s still quite a bit of room in there with this gear too. Now, here’s all the stuff inside.
Leica M4 with a Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4
Leica 21mm f/3.4 Super Angulon
Ricoh GR1 (Which will be stopping off for some repairs in Tokyo)
As for film, I carry Kodak Ektar and Fuji Acros for the GA645. Sometimes TMax instead.
The Fujifilm hard case (from Japan Camera Hunter of course!) is holding a mixture of bulk rolled Tri-X 400, Fuji Neopan 400 and Kodak Ektar for the M4 and Ricoh.
I’ve scratched the DX coding off the Neopan so I can shoot it at 1600 in the Ricoh.
Then there’s a small air blower, lens cloth, iPhone headphones and a notebook so I can remember which film was shot where, speeds, cameras and all that other junk.
Add a few maps, books and a passport and this is my travel bag too.

Most of the links are under a bit of construction, and Flickr is my photo dump. But feel free to take a look and check bag on the regular.
A lovely bag with lovely gear, thanks for sharing this with us Joel. This is very similar to the sort of bag that I would be shooting with. Check out Joel’s links and make sure you bring on your Camera Karma with a comment.
