In your bag No: 1263, Albert Ayala
Albert is NOT a first time on in-your-bag (despite me thinking that he is for some daft reason). And he steps up to the wicket with a very strong bag. Very simple, but very different cameras, and the bare minimum of bits. This is a no-nonsense film shooters bag. Check it out.

I have been a follower of you for quite some time. My name is Albert and I am from San Diego California, and photography is one of my creative outlets. I am a co-contributer for a photography collective called ANTI-PHOTO ( This is my second entry (bag 1116 was my first).

This is my smaller camera setup. So here is what is in my bag:

-Domke F-8 bag
-Leica Mini Zoom
-Leica CL w/ 40mm Summicron
-Olympus XA
-Moleskine notepad
-lens brush
-Krink markers, Sharpie
-Japan Camera Hunter film case

    Sometimes I wonder if he reads the submissions

      I do, but sometimes things slip past me. I have been overworking.

    @Alex & Daniel: This is the opening line that I read. when made my daily visit to JCH –

    “Albert is NOT a first time on in-your-bag (despite me thinking that he is for some daft reason). ”

    Did you fail to read? Or (and I’ll be charitable) did you have an earlier posting that had not be edited, and I read the corrected submission.

    BTW, this is what you’re complaining about? A typo slip? C’mon guys, lighten up and submit your bags. I’d like to see what you work with.

    My daughter, who is a working artist and an art professor in the Boston area, tells me that the “In Your Bag” segment is the photographic equivalent of peeking into an artist’s studio.

    I thoroughly enjoy the submissions, love reading about photographers in other parts of the world, and viewing their work. Thanks Bellamy. I promise you’ll see my submission within the next few days.
