when travelling

"My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, my camera is my passport."
Steve McCurry

SURPRISED BY An UZBEK THUNDERSTORm

"In 2016, during a hike in the mountains of Uzbekistan, two travellers, our guide and I were surprised by a terrible thunderstorm in the middle of our hike.

The rain was so intense that the canvas of my "waterproof" bag took on water from the first five minutes. Using a plastic bag, I tinkered with additional emergency protection. To escape the lightning that was coming, we hurried down the dripping paths at full speed.

Two hours later, we arrived at the refuge soaked to the bone. I immediately wiped my device carefully. It was still able to turn on, but a communication problem with the lens made it unusable. Beyond the material damage, I was so frustrated to continue two weeks on the Silk Road without being able to take a single photo.

Since then, I have become very critical of the adjective waterproof."

For a long weekend in rome

« I had the chance to try the [COMPACT/180mm] for 3 days in Rome. I hadn't set foot in Rome in years so I wanted to make the most of it: my days were full between the Vatican Museums, my red Vespa and the trattorias recommended by my Italian friends. 

As I don't like to go back to the hotel during the day, I was delighted to be able to fill the [COMPACT/180mm] for the day with my Leica M10, two lenses, a city guide and a bottle of water and for the evening with my make-up and a scarf... 

The most impressive thing for me was the all-purpose side of the bag, it is like a modern handbag. It is always chic whatever the setting and very functional. The last important point concerns the comfort, I didn't feel any overload even at the end of the day. »
