My entry in Greystones Camera Club's bi-weekly competition, theme this time round was "What's in your bag". I went for a vintage pulp fiction (the movie) feel

Not shown: cell phone and iPod, both of which are being charged.
I always wanted to do a " What's in your bag?" shot, so this rainy day was the day.
The contents of my bag change at times, but some aspects have become staples of me. The Airline tickets are still open and good, and I carry them with me just for that feeling of "what if" thanx for the buddy pass Dana.
The Moleskine has replaced my larger sketch book, and all this and more at times, fits well inside my treasured Saddleback Leather Briefcase.
3 shots for this HDR, which brings out the grain of the leather far better then a single shot.
Mitmachen erwünscht! Einfach Foto vom Inhalt eurer Taschen unten oder in eurem Stream posten. :)
If you want to participate, just take a shot of what's in your bag, too and post it here or on your stream. I'm curious about what can be found in your bags. :)
I've been wanting to do this for a while, so when I had time left over on my lunch break, I decided to give it a go.
A week later creating Part two to the "Free Fall" for the 10th FDT. The moment of impact came suddenly.
Happy Face Down Tuesday to all.
I'm exhausted and have no ideas for tonight so ..
here is all the stuff that was in my pockets throughout the day!
1) Random assorted change.
2) My iPod curiously, without the headphones
3) Andrea's business card
4) Camera Repair Shop Card
5) Memory Key x 2
7) Two cheques
8) Assorted bobby pins
Right now, what is in YOUR pockets?

Wanted a little more space compared to my Domke 5XA so I decided to try out the Ona Bowery in waxed canvas. It's just slightly larger which makes more room for a few rolls of film and extra batteries. Padding seems sufficient and build quality seems top notch. Looking forward to using this bag on my travels!

Mid day Espresso time on a rainy day.
I enjoy making collages out of some of my everyday carry items, this time I am using some here that I don't always carry but each has a special meaning. I hope you enjoy this collage as a form and function pleasure. It goes well with espresso and good music. Cheers.
As much as it pains me, I had to replace my favourite Timbuk2 messenger bags. I have mentioned previously (www.flickr.com/photos/beorn_ours/7988163639/) that I had an elbow injury which had me get rid of the Laptop. At this time I was using the messenger bag because none of the below had happened yet:
- I noticed that the messenger bag was hard to put on without exerting strain on the not yet completely healed elbow (taking it off was no problem at all)
- some tasks/functions I took on at work required me to use some Mac OS X grade software and as much as I like my iPad, it simply did not have those (some of them requiring advanced file management and file encryption)
So I had to switch to a backpack - I found out that putting it on and off is much less of a strain on my elbow as I previously thought. Naturally, I bought a Timbuk2 backpack - a custom Swig Backpack. I had several major issues with it. Those are things that might not affect everyone who will use this backpack, but for me, they make the Swig unusable:
- the Swig is one size and fits a 15 inch MacBook Pro such as the one above, but getting it out trough the swig side opening is almost impossible - it is a real fight to do that and this is not the aim of this bag
- this backpack has VERY FEW organisation possibilities, the result being that all the things (and I really haven't got that much anymore) are ending in a big bulk at the bottom of the bag making weight distribution impossible and creating a bulging lump on your back.
Looking at further backpack possibilities from Timbuk2 was not an option for me (delivery time of a couple of days was too long to wait as I had to lug the laptop already), although I found later that they do have something that would be better for my needs - Showdown Laptop Backpack. By then I have already given out quite a few bucks for Timbuk2 bags and did not want to risk it.
Then I went on a hunt for a good backpack - nothing in Zurich, Switzerland could answer any of my very specific needs. There were some really good bags and some interesting backpacks, but nothing as good in matter of organisation pockets as the backpack by Thule I found in the Apple online and then retail store. The product name is Crossover 25L MacBook Backpack - Black (www.thule.com/en/CH/Products/Luggage/DaypacksAndMessenger...) - do not trust the picture - it looks much more bloated in this picture than it is in real life as the producer was trying to show the total volume of, rather than to stress the really low profile this backpack has when on your back.
It has a vertical front pocket for my Kindle, sometimes my Moleskine is there for quick access to jot down notes while on my commute. Side pockets could hold a water bottle (half a litre bottles and even half a litre cans fit fine, although even my smallest SIGG bottle doesn't, which is why I don't carry any water currently), but I carry there keys, hand sanitizer and lip balm - the things I need immediate access to when out and about.
The front compartment has a mesh pocket for my wallet interdental brush and medicine tin. There is a very good plastic reinforced mesh pocket for my cables and SD cards.
The main compartment has got a good volume, but a narrow base so that it doesn't sag when all the contents fall to the bottom. To allow you to distribute the weight vertically, without it all amassing at the bottom you have the side straps to compress the volume of the main compartment.
At the bottom of the laptop holder you have a very good padding so that you can put your backpack down without worrying what you're doing to you laptop by doing so.
The shoulder straps are not padded and basically were the only thing that made me a bit hesitant when buying the bag, but they turned out to be very comfortable. There are a two carrying handles - one at the bottom and of course one at the top, in case you have the bag lying in some overhead compartment and you have to pull it out - you can do so no matter the position it is in.
NOW, we come to my favourite feature in this bag (after the reinforced mesh pocket and the vertical front pocket) - I call it the safe storage compartment, THULE calls it "Heat-molded, crush proof SafeZone™ compartment protects your sunglasses, iPhone, portable electronics and other fragile gear". It is really great for keeping this small piece of equipment that you do not want to be crushed or scratched by the rest of the things you cary. In my case what I put there are the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS camera and my brand new portable HDD LaCie Porsche design P9223 Slim 500GB.
So there, I hope all the above could be useful for someone who like me has a the need to transport a laptop everyday and has to ensure that putting this on and off one's back is exerting as little strain as possible on both arms and back.
This of the contents of my Eastpak that I took to London to run the 5k. I took the used sweaty clothes and spare pair of boxers out for aesthetics’ sake...
This is my camera bag that follows me everywhere, even inside my own home. I also toss it into the baby stroller.
Let's take a tour starting clockwise from the upper left, shall we?
1. Turano iPad bag with 4 compartments and some dividers. I wish they made this in red or army green or clear smoky plastic.
2. metal drafting triangle, I did forget to include my elliptical and circle templates which I use.
I have a miniature engineer's scale but there's no real reason to use it for what I'm doing, my cameras designs stand without toppling over and there's no standardized dimension of camera building materials to concern myself over. Actually, glue, tape, and architectural modeling supplies are my materials for the most part.
3. the Ricoh GRD3 is tuned for taking only baby photos. I treat it like a film camera; I don't use the LCD at all, it's got two settings for color or b&w, and I toss the used chips into a small plastic box. I will have to spend a week on the computer downloading and editing, maybe when my kids turn two years of age.
4. old-fashioned fan. I really use this. it feels so good in the hand, very practical. And good for fanning a restless baby in the stroller. I'd like to get a sandalwood one from HK.
5. Moleskine notebooks. The largest one fits in the Turano, amazingly. I have many sizes of these black notebooks. Actually, I have a red suitcase from my childhood full of nothing but notebooks.
6. Name seals and red ink paste.
7. Office date stamp
8. Muji measuring tape, in millimeters, you never know when you need to measure camera dimensions and distances.
9. Yellow tape, pencil sharpener (sandpaper works best, I find)
10. Coromega (the best Omega supplement and this brand causes no heartburn)
11. my quasi-conductor's watch made from a complimentary Michael Kors sample attached to a 70's key strap.
12. iphone and cover and 5mm kaweco lead holder, both in white and brass, my favorite color combo. I want a white and brass kit. Drawing with the Kaweco is a real pleasure. I upload all my drawings with the iphone, from anywhere.
13. Swiss Villiger Cigar box filled with clay scratchboard papers for drawings. I'd like to store an old-world gambling dice game, or a golf game in here too. Like the old Howzat game. I'm working on it.
14. Davidoff Primeros, the best small cigars I have ever had. There is a relic of St. Therese de Lisieux on top of the box. It's a piece of her habit. It blesses all my efforts.
15. Micron Pen set (.005, .01, .08 sizes)
16. Muji ink refill in gel blue, wonderful scriber's tool.
17. Namiki Fountain Pen with red ink cartridges. I wish they'd make a vermillion red ink. I can do all my drawings in red, I love the impact and color.
18. Delta La Dolce Vita Fountain pen with Fine nib. The opposite of the ink refill pen in size and feel.
19. HB lead holder
20. Promecha Super Pencil. A work of art in itself.
21. Macanudo Portofino tube with sandpaper for sharpening leads
22. Derwent Electric Eraser, one of my favorite tools, I cannot live without this when I am drawing.
23. Baby's Rattle. This is one of the best baby pacifiers I know of. Always handy to quiet the little ones.
First of all: I made it one month (yay!). Very happy.
This is the content of my new compagnon little messenger bag. Not as much as in the big one. But everything i need is in there.
Here we go. I think this group is one of the best ideas ever. I made the bag myself, check out the set here.
