This week, I went on a photo walk with my friend Alex.

We started the walk at sunrise and walked for about 3 hours. Here are my favorite photos that I took on the walk.

All photos shot on my Contax G2 with a 28mm or 45mm lens.

I like ambient music because it feels like I can see the whole world

My friend Alex recommended the Peak Design Everyday Backpack to me. I bought it at Peak Design’s Hayes Valley store.

I don’t usually recommend products, but this bag has been my favorite purchase in a long time.

My bag, complete with cameras, chargers, laptop…

I’ve never really owned a good bag before. My work gave me a messenger bag when I started, which was nice, but it didn’t have the organizational qualities that makes bags great.

This bag holds my laptop, and has a number of pockets that make organization easier.

The killer feature is that the bag opens from the side, meaning it’s easy to get discrete items in the bag, one handed. Staying organized feels like more of a default with this bag, and less of a challenge.

It’s a privilege to be able have nice, simple things. Very grateful for this bag.
