In your bag No: 1291, Edward Lakeman
It maybe a dreary autumn morning here, but this bag certainly brightens things up. What is it with you lot and knives though? Check out that Kodak though…very cool.

A few months ago I returned to Germany and therefore the very Brazilian and colourful bag had to give way to a more discreet bag. I travel a lot in Germany by bus and train and because of this I wanted a lightwight, simple, but reliable setup to shoot street and outdoor portraits. The simple army bag contains a classic street setup with a Leica III, a 35mm and a 50mm lens, but also a tiny Kodak pocket camera.

As you can see, I became more discrete. But I hope, that my pictures shot with both cameras won’t be discrete, but great and significant. Okay, let’s see if I really have talent ;)
