If My Bag Could Talk with Outdoor & Adventure Travel Photographer Emily Polar

“If my bag could talk, it would tell me stop dragging it down Dark Alleys, hauling it into Rusty Rickshaws and setting it down in the Dirtiest of Places while I take a chai.”

I spent 180 days in India, so finding myself in Delhi was inevitable. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when my anxious anticipation transformed into a playful space of curiosity and wonder as I approached Delhi.

I still had to deal with the heat, harassment and over stimulation of everything but that’s part of the experience. Street photography in Delhi is like a sport; a unique type of adventure photography where I became an agile dancing quarterback…or something like that.

When I’m out shooting on the streets the most important features on my bag are comfort and side access points with a minimal feel. I’m out all day running around so it needs to be comfortable and streamline so I can dodge in and out of people, traffic and cows. My go to day pack in India was the Transit 350. It did the trick for all of my needs meeting the minimal requirements with side access. It is now retired and I have moved onto the ProTactic 450.

Below are a few favorites from my days in the streets of Delhi. To see more of my rural adventures go to www.emilypolar.com and check out the blog or follow me on Instagram.
