Just because it’s that time of year (Ho! Ho! H0!) and just in case anyone’s actually reading (hint, hint, hint)…. these are the ones I reckon would be my preference:
I did a post on them a while back. They have some great colours to choose from. The Kelly Moore bags look good, too.
But actually, a new camera bag is pretty far down on my list of gear to buy for my business. So many other things to covet!

Has anyone found the perfect camera bag? Don’t think I have yet. They can be great for protecting gear, but too bulky and difficult to manage. Or just plain ugly. Sometimes they’re pretty, but not great at protecting your gear. Or great to carry while you shoot, but not big enough to hold everything you need to carry…. (which is a lot more than just camera gear!). Could this be the answer?
It’s the “Tote and Shoot” from shootsac. Check ’em out if you’re in the market for a new camera bag…. or perhaps looking for a Christmas gift for the photographer in your life. (Hint, hint!) Though I reckon you’d probably need to own a shootsac to put inside one of these babies, just to make sure your gear was really protected properly. (I must admit, my current camera bag certainly gives GREAT protection for my camera gear…. and in the end, that’s more important than the look of the bag. Way more. $$$$ more, really!)

You might have noticed I’ve been MIA. That’s “missing in action”, folks. It’s been crazy here, and will be for a little bit longer yet…. so if you’re talking to me and I start trying to photoshop spots off your face, or retouch a crumb from the corner of your mouth, would you please give me a swift slap and tell me to stop?
Still, there’s some fun to be had…. like the fun I had with this little guy. How could you not? Look at that face!
His mum and dad were great fun, too. The kind of people I love to just hang out with: relaxed, easy-going, and up for a good chat. I hope you like this sneak peek, guys.
Can’t wait for you to come and see your whole gallery.
PS: Gotta gets me a new blog…. watch this space in the new year….
….and yet I succumb each year now. The nagging. The peer pressure. They have won.
Here are the kiddos this year: Black cat and Vampire. (“What’s a vampire, Mummy?” “Something quick and easy to pull together, my son! Something quick and easy.”)
And I discovered I can paint faces. Who knew?
PS: To my pleasant surprise, Halloween was whisper quiet around here this year. The only trick-or-treaters we had were the kids from next door, unlike the last few years where we’ve had so many kids (and some of them way too old to be trick or treating in my opinion) that we’ve all but run out of treats. I’m not a party-pooper, though. Really, I’m not.
PPS: For a softer view of how Halloween has come to be part of our lives now, take a trip to this post on Tummy Mountain’s blog. I think I’m just a cranky pants!
