In your bag No: 1635 – Timo-Pekka Aaltonen

Timo is of the opinion that bags are overrated and needs just pockets to store all his daily goodies.

My name is Timo-Pekka Aaltonen and I live in the country side of Kisko, Southern Finland.  I’ve been shooting film since I was a child in the 70’s but continuously from about 2008. I take pictures mostly at home or very near, like in our greenhouse, shed or garden, mostly while doing something else. Wintertime it is walking with the dogs on a frozen field or in the forest.

Thus I’ve found out that a camera bag isn’t practical at all. Fortunately I can fit a pancake Konica and a mid-size zoom into my coat pockets. Today my large pockets were filled with:

1) Konica FT-1 motor

2) Konica Hexanon AR 40/1.8

3) Tamron 103A 80-210/3.8-4

4) Fujifilm Superia Extra 400

5) Leather mittens with fur lining are in the picture because it’s not spring here in March yet and the orange hat and yellow vest to signal the occasional hunter.

Thanks for sending in your anti-bag shot Timo. Now don’t be shy with your images…

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on

Send me a high resolution image of the bag. Optimum size is 1500px across. Please ensure there is a bag in the shot, unless you don’t use one. The more you can write about yourself the better, make it appealing and tell us a story. Snapshots of your gear with a camera phone and no words will not be featured.
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. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
