In your bag No: 624, Syafi Riduwan
Todays bag is cool for many reasons, but the main one for me is that there is a frikkin stash book in the bag shot! How cool is that? And if you are travelling around Cambodia it is not a bad idea either. Check it out.
My name’s Syafi and I’m from Singapore though I spent a large chunk of my life growing up in Melbourne, Australia. Recently, I went on a month-long backpacking trip to Cambodia with the following bag:
- My trusted Leica M6 with an Elmar 50mm 2.8 (and a cheap strap I bought off evil bay. Does its job alright)
- Rocket blower, lens pen, and a bunch of Sharpies to label my films.
- Cheap notebook and an expensive looking pen (good for taking down contact details of people you meet, and also a photolog)
- JCH film case
- Shower cap. Really good temporary rain protector till you scramble for cover.
- Bottle. Hydrate yourself people!
- A small book with its insides cut out. Stashed my money, passport, and whatever valuable things in here. No one takes notice of a seemingly boring book with a plain cover. (Just in case I’m being robbed or something like that)
All that stuffed into a Fossil bag. Nothing fancy, but its good enough.
It’s really great meeting other people on your travels, and even more if you meet a bunch of dudes shooting with film too! JCH has quite a following I must say, all 6 of us had the JCH film cases in our bags and one of them actually got his bag featured, though I couldn’t remember his name.
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Syafi. The book is cool and your setup is perfect for travel.
