Hello friends! I have a desktop wallpaper for you to download over at my personal blog. Use it as a reminder to stay positive and remember the grace God gives each of us every single day. No matter others’ wrongs against you, you still have the responsibility to show grace to them and to every person you encounter in your life.
Fun facts: I took this photo sitting at a picnic table right outside Devil’s Tower in Wyoming. I also have my first officially purchased font for the text.
I set out on a search for a small camera bag backpack that I could fit my Nikon D90 and 24-70mm lens into. That’s all I want to put in it. No extra lenses. No flash equipment. I want to begin taking my camera with me to concerts, hiking, on motorcycle rides, but I want it to be protected obviously. And cute. Is this too much to ask?!
It seemed like all the bags I found were either large, ugly, or just black (boring!) The cutesy, girly camera bags like Epiphanie or Jill-e, seemed to cater to the purse or laptop style. I actually already have Epiphanie’s Lola style bag – and I LOVE IT! However, it’s not an easy addition to strap on your back when you’re hanging on for your life on the back of your boyfriend’s motorcycle.
What I discovered on the camera bag search, was a handy-dandy little padded insert designed for DSLR cameras that you can slip your camera and lens into and then slip the entire padded insert into any bag or purse you want. I found it on Amazon.com for $22.00 and it’s an awesome addition to have for the on-the-go, journalistic-like photographers out there. The only downfall is that I should have purchased a larger size because my lens (24-77mm) attached to my camera body is slightly larger than the insert allows for so just check the size requirements you will need with the size of the insert before purchasing. Nevertheless, I highly recommend it! Now I get to go shop for some super fun backpacks – horray!
I went to the park with my little bestie this evening. We sat under a tree and read the lovely David Airey book “Work For Money, Design For Love.” Highly recommend reading it. Imagine the most perfect evening imaginable weather-wise. That’s what I am feeling right now as I sit on my deck and type this.
Do good work for good people. Even if you don’t get paid. Find joy in the selflessness of helping others.
