Thanks to one of the regular emails I receive from Photojojo I was inspired by the work of an Atlanta photographer, Jason Travis who went up to people on the street and asked them if could take their picture and one of the stuff they pack on a daily basis. I loved going through his series on Flickr. So I thought I’d do something similar.
First, a self portrait taken on the back porch:
Next, my bag with stuff and honestly I didn’t realize I packed so much stuff! Maybe time to go back to college backpack?
-coach wallet, hideously expensive and such a symbol of overindulgence, but I love it anyway
-daily planner/journal, where I keep track of my school assignments
-paperclips, no idea why I carry these, maybe it’s a McGyver thing?
-pens, highlighters, and pencils
-watercolor kit, just in case inspiration strikes
-lotion, sticky notes, gum, kiddie snacks, instant Starbucks
-current textbook I read whenever I can
-pillowcases I need to remember to take to preschool for kiddie project
-keys, tampon holder, nail file, lip gloss, chap stick
-art stuff: pencil sharpener, watercolor brushes, pencils for sketching, kneaded rubber eraser, moleskin journal
-padlock for when I actually make it to the gym
-iphone with icky blue cover since my pink one broke
-my handmade business card case (brown) plus other little pouch for stuff
-misc mail, receipts, notes
So, what’s in your bag?
