My sweet Camera

November 1, 2022

My friends & family are simply annoyed by my camera bag, it has travelled to many countries.

Dropped a few times, full of all sorts of funky smells from incense in India, to water buffalo poo from my road trip to Chaing Rai.

To a little bit of wine (okay maybe a lot). Maybe champagne and definitely many cups of coffees messed on my journeys.  As I am always travelling somewhere.

My camera bag looks like a bag of refuse, but inside I carry 4 lenses, my darling Canon 700D body, a baby tripod, lots of random things. Business cards collected along the way. Vicks for my nose when I find myself in a smelly situation and pain killers!!!   Lots of tissues and my favourite China red lippy, for a quick rogue or serious red lips! Heartburn medicine and hair bands.

I never travel without medication. In a secret compartment, I have a little blue helper, an anxiety pill.  This is for desperate measures such as a tuk-tuk drive from hell or when I zipline from one mountain to another. Or get attacked by my subject I am photographing.  To that one time, we were charged by a massive male Elephant bull that was in must.

Here is the reason why I carry her like an appendage! You just never know what you see that you can photograph! My favourite thing to do is to take memories of the places I have been too, things I have experienced and finally make art. In my own special way.
