Had a similar experience in my youth. A photographer from the local newspaper came to photograph a classical concert in the school auditorium. He brought a Leica and when he changed lenses he put one lens in the pocket of his jacket and took the other lens from the opposite pocket. Probably kept his keys in his trouser's pockets though

I will add, that I find most of the blog linked to in the OP a bit strange. Part of the joy of being an amateur is that you can take the time you need to get it right, technically and otherwise. Photographing portraits of amateur models OTOH forces me to work quickly, before they lose interest.

And using the best gear I can afford also means that I can't afford to lose it due to carelessnes.
