In your bag 849, Dennis Van Patten
Todays bag comes from New York and is ultra purist. Just the bare essentials for street photography. Come and check out Dennis’ great bag.

My name is Dennis , I am from New York and I like to do street photography whenever I have free time for it.
I’ve always wanted to submit my own bag to the site , but I don’t have a digital camera ,(Can you believe it? Haha) so I finally borrowed my friend’s shitty one.

Week Day Bag:

This is what my usual “weekday” bag looks like. Since I don’t have the time to shoot a ton I carry only one camera with me , the barnack is light and solid  , and get’s the job done.


-1938 Leica III

1x Summitar: This thing has less micro dust then a new VC glass ,it’s so clean that I have to use a B+W filter on it.

1x Orako: For sunny days , when I need more contrast on the rangefinder patch.

1x Leica Bright Line Viewfinder: This is really helpful when I am zone focusing at F8 , beats a M viewfinder.

2x Rollei Retro 400s: My new Neopan.

-Compact leather portfolio that has everything for my work and when I go to classes , even has a custom insert made for my macbook air , which I carry at all times.

-iPhone 4 (Yeezus is on repeat , tracks like “New Slaves” and “I am a God” really speak to me in a personal level)

-Some stainless steel headphones.

-Brown leather wallet that rather aged beautifully.

-Ray Bans for when I do not get any sleep.

-Hand Sanitizer.

-Book by Robert Adams about taking pictures , just picked it up.

-Black canvas/leather backpack.

Thanks for checking it out guys. You can find my photographs below on flickr , I plan on updating it with 60+ shots soon.

Thanks for sharing your bag with us Dennis. I love the III and the Summitar, cool stuff.
