How many of you have ever tried to organize your camera bag. It probably is as bad as my wife’s extra large purse. (Uh-oh, I’ll get letters). Anyway, that’s about the way my own bag is. I got a new Canon 10-22mm super wide-angle len from B&H Photo yesterday.
This morning I unpacked it, got my camera bag out and proceeded to try and find a place for the new lens. I figure that having a well-packed camera bag is like owning a professional baseball team, like the Texas Rangers. When I went through the stuff I had in that bag, I decided that some stuff need to go back down to the Triple A farm team and some had to go on the disabled list.
I have a Tamron 200-400mm lens in there that I hadn’t used in years. Don’t need it. I have a Canon 18-55mm kit lens that I never used. Don’t need it. Those two go back down to Triple A, maybe I trade them off. I have Sigma 17-35mm lens that I don’t use because the auto-focus is screwed up. Definitely go on the disabled list.
Digging further down I realize that this may be a major project. What is this?? A little blue flash bulb from my old Brownie Hawkeye! Let me see now. There is the 50 ft remote shutter release that I thought it would be fun to have. Never used it. They now have a new fangled electronic remote for those situations. Need to get one of those. Probably will never use it, though it would be fun to have
Now I am down to the furtherest depths. Turn on the basement lights. Literally down to the nitty-gritty. Some lint of some sort I can’t identify and a dead cricket. But there’s a Renoir on the wall. 🙂
So now my bag is re-organized for awhile. What fun that was. And as I ogled my wife’s purse, she said “No way, buster!”
