I’m Elia and you’ve seen me on the Timbuk2 blog before. I have a bit of a Timbuk2 obsession. I love street photography and don’t leave home without my camera. I also travel a *lot* – just last year, New York, Barcelona, Santiago de Chile, Abidjan – and seem to have a knack for spotting Timbuk2 wherever I go. I’ve always carried Timbuk2 bags but only recently started capturing them with my camera when I discover them in the wild. The Timbuk2 crew and I thought it would be fun to share my discoveries with you so I’m officially introducing myself as an occasional Timbuk2 guest blogger. So hello, y’all! You’ll be hearing from me when I spot Timbuk2 bags, have a camera-carrying thought or stumble across an urban scene you simply must see.
On a recent one-week trip to New York City, I had all my luggage (including my laptop and SLR camera, clothes and a couple of books) fit in my Swig backpack. Once there, I couldn’t help but noticing several Timbuk2 bags, but interestingly I spotted most of them in the subway. Could this be because in San Francisco biking is definitely faster than Muni, but in NYC subway is the fastest option?
