In your bag 415, Filippo Buraschi
If you are not a lover of Leica then I suggest you look away now, as todays bag is just about as loaded with Leica as it could possibly be. Come and see what I mean.
Hallo Bellamy and all of you! I am in my early fifties, I live and work in Milano, Italy, in the financial sector. They are almost 35 years I am involved in photography as amateur, for many years with Canon film gear (AE1, F1, T90, EOS3 and EOS 1V!);
In digital I also shot with Canon 500D and 7D and a series of original lenses.
Now from six year I am also ill with a strange syndrome called “Leica”.
Normally I use my M9 with some lenses, all original now, after have used also voigtlander Lenses.
Occasionally use also the oldest M6 TTL and M7 with B&W and Kodak or Fuji slides.
Mainly I shot city view, some street and generic travel, but also I take photos during my trek or climbing (not with Leica gear in this case!!)
Here is one of my bag, a Billingham Hadley Original; but I use also a small Tamrac or a Tamrac Adventure 9 backpack in some of my travels.
In this shot, from right:
Leica M9 black paint with Leica Summicron 50 (fantastic!) , hand grip, 1.25 magnifier and original Leica’s leather shoulder strap
Leica 35/1.4 Summilux Asph (old version)
Leica Summicron 90/2
Leica Tele Elmar 135/4 last version
Leica M6 TTL “LHSA” limited edition, with Luigi’s shoulder belt and half case
Leica M7 black chrome, Luigi’s belt, hand grip “M”
On the left:
Leica Summilux 50/1.4 II with original hood and cap
Leica Elmarit 21/2.8 Asph with multi focal finder
Leica Elmarit 28/2.8 Asph
I add microfiber tissues, sometimes a notebook 13’’PC , while I don’t love tripods, I have two Manfrotto.
