I found this bag at Target for $2.50. Two dollars and fifty cents! For that price, I thought it worth trying something new, something completely outside of the realm of my usual style. I'm not a purse person by nature, but as a mom with a daily photography project, I need to carry my camera with me in a way that provides some level of protection. I like the way this bag stands up on its own, and the open top provides easy access to the camera, or my keys, or the kids' sunblock.
Editing photos to this obvious level also feels out-of-character for me, but on days that we don't leave the house, I'm enjoying the challenge of creating an interesting moment out of the every day objects around me.
