I doubt I can put a figure to it, but there have been any number of times I’ve left the house, kitted-up for an early morning, or evening shoot only to be en route to my chosen location and discover my most important item of all has been left behind.
When that happens, there’s nothing else but to turn around and head home.
There’s no special pouch for it. It doesn’t require special handling, or a UV filter, but without it, I’m wasting my time.
No. It’s not a camera.
It’s the muse that makes it all work for me. Probably you have one too.
I’ll get around to the real kit that’s in my bag in a later post. For now, here are two sets of images I deliberately set out to shoot with my Leica M9. I won’t say which is which – one was a wander in Cape Town with a couple of the members of Facebook’s Cape of Storms Photographic Group, the other a trip into the Karoo with a photo-buddy. On one outing, I definitely had my muse along with me, the other I really should have stayed home – it should probably be sub-titled; “Setting new standards in mediocre”.
