Camera Bag

There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

Camera Bag

I've been in bag making mode lately - I wanted a new camera bag but not your usual obvious camera bag. For a long time I've used an insert which I've put in a regular tote bag but I decided it was time to make my own bag. The first one came out ok but not great so that is my everyday tote bag now and I've just finished a second which I think will do the job.

It takes both Olympus cameras nicely and if I want extra lenses then I can always chuck on in another bag - mostly however if I'm off on a photo day then one will have a macro on and the other a long lens. And, of course it doesn't look like a camera bag which is handy when there's a couple of grand's worth of kit inside.

I was hoping you'd post pics of your bags. I myself use an ordinary bag with an insert but I've not tried to make a customised one. Are your bags waterproof? They look very smart.

Those are really nice, I must say I've been looking for something myself - dont want to carry a ruck sack all the time.

Jane Bown and my departed friend Joan Wakelin used to carry their cameras in vaguely similar bags. Joan was able to get into the secure refugee holding facility and take her pictures of the Vietnamese boat people because the guards didn't suspect that she might have been a photographer. Joan was an Hon FRPS among other awards.
