In your bag 756, Brett Franklin
Definitely a first on JCH, a bag with Vinyl inside. I love my old records, so it is nice to see Brett carrying some funk around in his bag. Check this one out.

Hi, JCH ‘In Your Bag’ is just the most kick-ass web page there is, i love all the submissions.

Ok this is my set up for a weekend away in Nuremberg ( Dec 2014) my other main passion is the collecting of original American 1970’s Soul and Funk records, i DJ extensively in the UK and Europe ( Nuremberg Soul Weekender, all expenses paid which is nice )

Travel allows me to indulge in my photographic passion, i love to visit new places be they England or further afield, this is my travel set up for the Germany odyssey ; Crumpler Light Delight 4000, great small bag, my other main bag is a Billingham hadley, but i like keeping things close and discreet. Canon A-1 with 35mm f3.5, classic angle that i love for street photography, Leica CL with Jupiter 50mm f2 ( i’m in the process of getting either a Summicron or Rokkor 40mm, then the boy will have a real mate ), Ricoh GRD II ( for nightclub shots etc, ) Lenspen, lens cloth. i’m 49 years old i have recently returned to my film cameras and i’m loving it all over again, and i’ll be processing my black and white Kodak T Max 400 over Christmas, just like i used to back in the 80/90’s. Metz 20-C Flash, great little travel flash for use at night ( the weekend will start at 10pm and finish over two days at 6 am).  IPhone 5 ( i’d be lost with out my personal assistant), Sena leather case, Moleskine and Clip on pencil, just to write little things down or a rare record i may hear. I still shoot with my Olympus EP2 and Panasonic 20mm, but i can feel a definite shift towards analogue. Keep up the great site.

Two links of my photographs.

Thanks for the bag shot Brett. Cool to see the records too. A super analogue bag.
Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions.

    Great street shots, Brett. Did you print them in the classical way?

    Hope you enjoyed Nürnberg.

      Hi thanks for the comments, haven’t printed anything im just processing when i can, have a great old Agfa daylight loading machine, i may move up to the enlarger at a later date, but happy to scan the negatives when i can, like i said just recently returned to shooting film, so a lot of my old posts on my Flickr/Blog are digital, but i’m taking a small Olympus XA and a Minox 35 GT to work each day ,loaded with either Agfa 400 or Kodak T max 400 ) and am capturing what i can if it’s of interest, and Yes Nurnberg was excellent.

    Strange how many people turn (back) to film as they approach 50….. did it some months ago and no regrets!

      Fully agree, i used to shoot film in the 80’s, made the move to digital ( i still enjoy that medium ( Ricoh GRD11 and Olympus EP 2, Lumix 20mm ) but i find the whole process of using film very liberating , plus i did recently get the Minolta Rokkor f2 for my Leica CL and i am really enjoying this cool combination, just that and a few rolls of Kodak T Max 400. I regrettably sold some years back my mint black Contax T2 to fund a record purchase, but i am tempted to re invest.
