Camera gear I took to Kyoto

This weekend I went to Kyoto with no real plans and took lots of pictures. I wanted to keep my bag somewhat light so what I took was my m3 with 90mm asph apo, m9 with 35mm summicron asph, go pro hero 4 black and my ipad(took a time-lapse). I think the 35mm and 90mm summicrons really complement each other. I didn’t really find a time where I thought I needed more reach/more wide. I wrote about the m3 and the 90mm before, but it is really a stealthy setup. The only downside is its on the heavy side compared to the 35mm summicron and m9. It was a nice overcast weekend and never rained so I could shoot 400 tri-x all day and some at night no problem. If I could only have one camera and one lens for a trip like this I’d have to go with the m3 and ms-optical 50mm f1.1 though. I didn’t bring it and sort of regret it, especially for night shots, but I think the 35/90 setup is really good. 

I’ll try to post some black and white stuff once it’s developed but all I have now is color.
