Wild Things and My Spiffy Camera Bag

I love these teeny-tiny wildflowers
Like little fireflies
dancing in the forest.

I adore ferns
which grow in beautiful
uncontrollable abundance.

And this . . .  is my camera bag
It's a repurposed refitted
diaper bag.
Waterproof with pockets and pouches
and zippers.
It safely stores my Canon 7d and two lenses
plus an assortment of stuff.
The bad guys haven't a clue
what hides inside.

Love your camera bag! What a great idea. I just bought a new Lowepro. It's still in the sack. Maybe I'll take it back!

Mel said...

Ohhh.....very spiffy! What a brilliant idea well executed. AND it has Pooh on it. :-)

As a lover of bitty yellow flowers and ferns......I love the 'reaching for the sky' photo of the ferns.

Hilary said...

Lovely photos and what a great idea. Refitted.. how so? Did you add those velcro dividers?

Beautiful capture, makes me want to be in that field sitting among the flowers, WITH YOUR CAMERA BAG for my very own. I adore Pooh! I have a big Pooh watch with bees for the second hand that circle around Pooh and his honey pot. Your bag would be perfect! I guess I need to ask where you go it?

Great pictures and great idea to repurpose that bag.

As usual, fabulous flower images, Laura. That's great use for a Pooh diaper bag, too. I have two new BIG camera bags....BIG is too big, most of the time.

They do now.

Tammy.. I found the bag at a garage sale about 2 years ago. It was brand new with tags so I assume they're still available, maybe at Target since we have one here.
Hilary.. Yes, I use velcro dividers. My camera gear fits amazingly well in it, snug but not too snug.
It's perfect for me.. I don't like advertising that I'm carrying pricey camera gear.

Haaaaaaa....love the yellow flowers and the Ferns lol....but that diaperbag caught my eye because my grandsons nursery was done in Classic Winnie the Pooh...the soft yellows, greens, blues and tans. My daughter would LOVE that bag...and I am going to do a double check next time I see her' cause I thinkshe may actually HAVE that bag.

It's a Small World....no wait...that's a Whole DIFFERENT

In Him,

Horst.. I thought about that. But I live in the country, very rural, few around here even know who I am.

Love that new camera bag, Laura! Who doesn't love Winnie the Pooh! I have a backpack style camera bag which works well in the bush.

Love your image today. Thank you for sharing at YSB this week! xo

Using a diaper bag for camera storage is a wonderful idea. I am a fan of Pooh Bear too. I read your post and love the format and photographs posted. You are a master at ideas.
