Forgotten roll

I always have a compact 35 mm camera with me, typically loaded with Portra 400. In fact, I have quite a few of these “everyday walkabout” cameras laying dormant in various bags and jackets. Sometimes I take a shot if I happen to notice a nice texture, a colour combination, or a shape that interests me. It’s not goal oriented and I try not to think too much about it. The process is slow: finishing a roll can (and should) take days or even months. Sometimes I simply forget about them half-way through. The images above are all from one such roll: started in summer last year, finished yesterday.

For the dad who puts on a suit for his nine to five, his carry should reflect his business needs. Lightweight so they don’t slow him down as he makes strides in and out of the office, while still promoting usefulness.

For the dad living in the digital world, his carry should be efficient and practical in connecting him with his technology. The techie dad’s gear is as modern as his lifestyle is, working in sync with the rest of his carry.

For the dad who likes to rough it up and blaze trails on the weekend, his gear should be high quality, rugged, and built to last against the elements. Unexpected adventures await outside, so this dad’s carry should be exceptionally reliable.

From running a marathon to biking on a mountain pass, the active dad’s carry has to keep up with his lifestyle. The active carry should be resilient in rain or shine, light enough not to slow him down, and help him get the most from his activities.

For the dad that likes to build, tinker, restore, and repair. Heavy duty needs mean a heavy duty carry, but utility doesn’t have to mean giving up the practicality of a sleek loadout.
