Before and After

This posting is for Marjorie, who wanted to see a pic of my new camera bag! How could I resist showing it off.  Everyone in the office seemed to be very relieved this morning that I had found one.... I have no idea why?!

I must show you the "Before" first.

Tamrac 5515 Adventure Zoom 5 Camera Bag Holster Case (Gray) + Tripod + Accessory Kit for Canon Rebel XSi, XS, T1i, XTi, 40D, 50D, Nikon D40, D60, D5000, D90, D300, D700, Olympus Evolt E-30, E-450, E-520, E-620, and Sony Alpha A200, A300, A350, A700 Digital SLR Cameras

Very BLACK, I had the choice of wearing it over my shoulder or on my belt.  Belts! in this weather - think not!!!!  So my quest for a girlie bag started, the plus point for the bag was my camera was well protected and fitted snugly inside. BUT I wanted a pink one or at least something that didn't shout geek.  To be honest it had become an obsession, I phoned and seached the world over.  Nope, not a thing.

So here is the "AFTER"

A small Kipling rucksack bag that is no larger than 30cm, has outside pockets that I can put things in and it is a scrummy shade of raspberry.  I did what Tony suggested and stripped the black camera bag down to the padding and sewed it into the main section of the rucksack.

My camera still fits snuggly inside.....


Camera strap folds up and fits ontop, zip it up and off I go!  I am not a photographer but definitely a point and click girl, my Canon does all the work and I have all the fun. Remember I went to the beach yesterday for a walk, well it was very windy and the boys were out having fun....  (rather pleased with this action shot!!)

Good luck with your rainbow bag Marjorie.
