Hi folks, Well it's taken long enough but I'm at home with my leg in plaster and no longer have the excuse of being too busy or tired. I am a pro photographer by profession and as a result am far too lazy to take out my camera and photograph my gear or indeed to a particularly good job of it. Still life in particular is pretty much my worst area of photography (followed closely by street photography), give me a landscape, a wedding, commercial work or what I do now, reproduction photography and I'll wow you. Ask me to set up a still life, I can get you perfect lighting and technique (albeit not here) but I ask the assistant to set it up to look cool or pretty I'm 35 years old (just), an English boy born of Scottish parents, I was born in Newcastle but grew up, via Liverpool, in Manchester. Those are three very big names if you're into football! I was a wedding and commercial photographer for 10 years until my feet gave out on me. Now I manage a large studio (was 3 studios but we've finally got everything together in one location) in Jerusalem for a museum photographing ancient artefacts, mainly manuscripts and documents but other artefacts too, going back over the past 800 years of Jewish life in the Diaspora but mainly from the Middle East. I'll show some pictures here with a bit of rambling on about why and what. Hope I don't bore you all! I'm not good at shutting up. I usually value most in the posts here when I can read the why, the logic, behind the choices of EDC. I'm also going to list the stuff, I hate seeing great pictures of obscure things and having to ask what they are. First things first, pocket dump. 1) Nokia 2730 Classic, 2) Verge Minimalist Wallet, 3) Gotham Pocket Watch, 4) Case XX soft leather sheath, 5) Case Sodbuster Jr, 6) Eagletac D25AAA, 7) Boker Vox Access Tool, 8) Keysmart. 1) I hate smartphones and the old Nokia's are built like bricks. It just works. 3 days between charging helps too. 2) The wallet was a kickstarter, a better design than the Saddleback equivalent in my opinion due to the stitching ending before the top giving better access to the middle pocket. It's tiny, thin, well wearing and the leather looks great with wear.3) Pocket watch. Yes I like old fashioned. I wear bow ties and cravats. It was however a practical decision. I had a titanium Seiko before and even then I'd always take it off when in work or at home. It bothered me for typing, writing or work. It was also getting badly scratched up by my biking. Hence the pocket watch. I just makes sense, my arm is free of the bother, and it's always there. I've found that not having the time immediately viewable has also given me a more relaxed attitude to life, ditto the use of a slipjoint or non smart phone. A return to a less 'immediately now' way of life which our generation has barely known but our grandparents knew well.4) The Case sheath is new to me, trying it out, I like it a lot, light, soft, flexible and disappears on the belt.5) The Sodbuster Jr is to be frank a 'place keeper' to keep me going, got a Northwoods and my replacement Queen on the way. It's a good knife though, works and looks/feels great, punches above it's price for certain.6) The Eagletac is tiny, light and looks ok. Dirt cheap too. Nichia 219 is wonderful and the output and mode spacing is perfect. However. I've begun to really hate twisties. I had a Beta QR (lost it ) before and that was better but this one with it's zillions of modes and two handed twisty operation is just a pain in the neck to be frank. I've got a L11c on the way to replace it. 7) The Boker Vox replaced my Sharpwerks pry tool which I didn't like from a usability point of view. The Boker is incredibly light, I love the carabiner and the ergonomics. It's not usually on my keychain but my Leatherman Style CS is off being repaired, the Boker gives me something to grab onto in my pocket to yank the collection out. 8) I'm a big fan of the Keysmart, I have 6 big bulky keys on that think and it's the best solution I've found for non 'regular' sized keys. My pocket adores it! I have questions about the build quality, the screw in extenders keep breaking however it is essential to my pocket.
