In your bag 811, Trevor Hughes
Could this be the most badass bumbag (fanny pack to Americans. Heh, fanny) ever? Trevor shares with us the barest bones of a kit. Check it out.
My name is Trevor Hughes and I am a street photographer living in Toronto, Canada.
This photo is a look back – way back to the years 1992-1998 when I was working as a bike messenger. I had an unique opportunity to document an intimate portrait of the bike messenger community in Toronto.
My approach was minimalist.
small compact waist bag (allowed quick access to camera)
Rollei 35 SE
Ilford HP5 film
B+W rubber lens hood (I should have used it more often)
For 9 years the Rollei was my constant companion on the road while I was working as a messenger. Throughout the seasons and in all weather conditions the Rollei performed flawlessly.

These days I have moved on to digital but stayed minimalist; a Ricoh GRD3 carried usually in a pocket. My recent work can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/trevorhughes/
Thanks for sharing that with us Trevor. Sometimes the bags get a bit too big, it is nice to see this and hit reset.
