I Going on a few day trip with my photography class to small island on the south-west of Ireland with population of over 100 people. Was packing my bag and decided to share with you guys!

– Mamiya 7 (Just bought it recently, very excited to get into medium format!)
– Mamiya 65mm f4 lens

    Nice outfit. I always like to see how people seamlessly blend cutting edge electronics with analog cameras. They both have places in a bag.
    BTW, what is the name of the art/photography college in Ireland?
    It’s gotta be cool to study photography in Ireland.
