Padded bag inserts for camera equipment

Wow, I’ve been looking for something like this for years but I never knew what keywords to use to search for it. I have a backpack for my laptop and when travelling usually carry my camera gear wrapped up in clothes or paper but this should fit (with a little squeezing) into my backpack. I hope I can fit a Canon 40D and Sigma zoom lens in there with enough space for my Sigma wide angle too.

The flash can sit outside, it already has a padded cover.

I’ll update this post in a few weeks time with photos. You can find loads of these on Ebay.

Harry the Westi

Harry, a west highland terrier, ran through the waves at Dunworley Beach yesterday. We met his owners, John and Julie, on the beach and our dog Oscar and Harry had a great time playing together!

John and Julie are also run Dillon’s Restaurant in Timoleague. Hopefully next time we’re down that direction we can pop in there for a bite to eat!
