Dave!So there I was loading up my camera bag on my second day in Sydney when I realized "Holy shit, I'm carrying a purse!" Because when your camera content drops below 50%, I think it pretty much ceases to be a camera bag. I had sunscreen, aspirin, my wallet, room key, iPhone, cash, stamps, passport and all kinds of other assorted crap that I need to get through the day.

Oh... and my camera.

Now that I'm back home, I'm missing my "camera bag." It's kind of handy having all your stuff with you all the time. I'd just start carrying it again, but it got a little dirty as I was hiking around Uluru in the Outback.

So now I'm in the market for a new "camera bag." The problem is that there's so many awesome designs to choose from that I can't make up my mind! After a week of looking, I think I have it narrowed down to five choices now...

Purple Bag

Juicy Bag

Orange Bag

Colorful Bag

Hello Kitty Bag

Yes. Yes I know... the Hello Kitty "camera bag" skews a little young for me. But I totally think I can pull it off!

The problem is that my Batman Chuck Taylors don't go with it very well, so I don't have the right shoes. So I guess that means I'll be buying some new footwear once I decide on the "camera bag" I like best.

The life of a photographer ain't an easy one.

    You need the Hello Kitty bag. Now. Bad. There is no other choice.

    So get which one YOU want.

    As long as it’s the Hello Kitty bag.

    Or else.

    Hahaha. I carry a backpack with me so I look all studious (and blend right in here in this college town) but really the backpack functions as man-purse. So I suppose it’s sort-of my beard. And I’m okay with that.

  3. Stacey says:

    This made me smile. Love it. 🙂

    (Also, I vote for “camera bag” #4.)

  4. Sybil Law says:

    That is a rough choice. I have to say I think the first one would go best with your eyes. I mean camera!

  5. Tracy says:

    Girl, your bag choices are FIERCE! You just made me pee a little. 🙂

  6. Megan says:

    Oh, the Juicy one. With sweats to match. Rawr.

  7. Lisa says:

    I think the Hello Kitty one is awesome!

  8. BosGuy says:

    I have my favorite; curious what you’ll choose and want to see the stilettos you’ll be purchasing to accompany “le bag”.


  9. Nenette says:

    I say buy your top 3 faves so you can, you know, switch them out at whim to match your dress, I mean, outfit for the day. If it makes it easier, choose one for every day, another for special occasions, and one for quick trips to the beauty salon. 🙂 xo

  10. walt says:

    Juicy! If you are going there go with Juicy! You can’t go wrong…

  11. claire says:

    Oh, that first sentence made me laugh. Aren’t there Hello, Kitty’s that come in black and white? That would go with your Batman sneakers pretty well.

  12. KaraB says:

    Juicy, hands down. Then you can get the sweatpants with the matching “Juicy” on the butt!

  13. This cracked my shit up on a day I really needed it. Thanks, Dave :o)

  14. Suebob says:

    All the hot photo bloggers are carrying Epiphanie bags.

    I lust after Paris in purple myself.

  15. Mary Sue says:

    Don’t say I never got you anything. Batman purses.

  16. the muskrat says:

    None of the above.

  17. Hilly Sue says:

    Wait wait wait, you have *Batman* Chuck Tayjors? Um, why haven’t we been married yet, you cool sonofabitch?
