I’ll Show You Mine, Now You Show Me Yours

Get your mind out of the gutter!

* * * * * *

It’s no secret: I love bags!  I’ve always loved them. There’s even a long standing joke between Michael and myself about the number of purses I own or have owned in the 16 years we have been together.  That being said, I have always  feared that my purse box would mysteriously disappear from where it is stored.  I have that many purses.  And, he has that much disdain over this fact.  But, now, my purse love has turned into camera bag love.  Mostly because I have to take my camera with me [almost] everywhere I go.  Yes, even to Wal-mart!  You never know when there will be some shopping excursion that needs documenting, right?

My first camera bag was, of course, the big Canon bag that could—at the time—house my gear and then some, but now would not even come close to fitting all my equipment.  I soon realized that I needed something smaller and less noticeable (and cooler, too!)  I got a Crumpler.  That bag was just big enough for my XTi with my 24-70mm f/2.8 and my Speedlite.  The last time I opened it up was on Christmas morning of 2009, also known as Christmas 5DMK2!  That bag would prove to be way too small, and I was relegated to carrying my big Canon bag around.  But, that wouldn’t be the best option.  I mean, who wants to roll around town with a big Canon bag on her shoulder?  This would be the end of taking my camera on shopping trips.  Then came an Epiphanie, and her name was Lola.   All was right with the world.

Recently, though, I was sent a beautiful *Kelly Moore Bag to review.  I chose the the yellow messenger style because I have always LOVED that kind of bag.  I wanted something totally different from Lola, and [Mustard Boy -oh- boy] did I get it!

This Kelly Moore Bag is great to take on photo-shoots.  I love how I can easily open the flap and get whatever piece of equipment I need out.  There are two side pockets that are perfect for my cell phone and sunglasses.  There’s a front zipper pocket that is big enough for my hardcase wallet and then two zipper pockets that I keep extra memory cards, batteries, the collapsible lenshood for my 50mm, Lensbaby focus rings, and business cards.  There’s even room for lipstick!   If I had a mini, I would definitely be able to take that with me, too, carrying it in the back pocket.  My laptop actually fits, it’s just too heavy to carry in there since I don’t have one of those lightweight, handy-dandy Macs.    Also, the bag closes with really strong magnets, and I am totally not nervous when I carry and use it.

Oh, and, there are three different styles, with many different colors to choose from; there’s a bag to suit everyone’s taste.

All-in-all, for me, the Kelly Moore Mustard Boy Bog is the perfect addition to my camera bag collection.  I absolutely love its versatility, and when I carry it around with me on shoots (or even just photo walks on, say, Lake Laniere or the fireworks show in Dahlonega) I feel totally professional yet hip, at the same time.

Which brings me to my big news:

I am giving away a Kelly Moore Bag!

    My heart is going pitter-patter!

  2. 07.21.2010

    the mustard hobo. HANDS DOWN!

  3. 07.21.2010

    Oh. My. Bob. I am in love, love, love with that B-Hobo bag in Teal! Gotta have it!

    I’m following Kelly on Twitter and joined the FB group. As for the “selfy pee” — that’ll happen maybe. LOL!

  4. 07.21.2010

    Honestly the B-Hobo in mustard is TOTALLY my favorite. I have a major mad love thing for bright orange-yellows. I am using a REALLY HEINOUS camera bag right now.

  5. 07.21.2010

    Oh and I joined the FB group and followed on twitter!

  6. 07.21.2010

    Everytime I see a picture of you, I think about how you grow even cuter as each day passes by.

  7. 07.22.2010

    Oooo that boy bag is the bestest EVER!! I soo so so badly want one. So what are the chances here in SA then?
    Oh I follow on Twitter and FB and will link a blog post soon *Crosses all the bits and praying for good luck to come my way*

  8. 07.22.2010

    That bag is soooo groovy I’m coming out of lurkdom to comment. I’m always here looking at your photos and have drooled over you Lola bag in the past … I’ve never seen anything besides boring camera bags here in Oz, but that bag is so damn cute … even in my least favourite colour of yellow.
    I’m only learning to use my lovely second-hand Canon 400d (there’s a long story about how I got my Canon somewhere on my blog/s but the short version is that it was the last birthday present my darling hubby gave me before he died back in march this year).
    Anyhooo… I’m to incompetant to enter the competition but will be watching out for all the entries (in addition to silently admiring your normal photography work :)

  9. 07.22.2010

    I am VERY discerning when it comes to bags. They have to hang right with adjustable straps, they have to carry more than cameras, and they have to have a look of sophistication and yet my husband can carry the bag around on the chance that he borrowed my camera for an event. (I used to have a camera bag that was actually an insulated lunch bag. It had pretty polka dots that embarrassed my husband to carry around.) While the Kelly More Classic bag (in grey) would be my first pick, the boy bag (in that luscious brown) would be the one I actually acquired.

  10. 07.22.2010

    My Fav: Kelly Moore Classic Bag | Black

  11. 07.22.2010

    BTW your hair looks awesome! I love your selfy-pee.

    Aaaand I follow Kelly on twitter and joined the group on facebook.

  12. 07.22.2010

    HOBO. for sure. in any color, because oh my god, LOVE.

    off to take an embarrassing photo now…

  13. 07.22.2010

    Love the Kelly Boy Bag in mustard which I think is the one you reviewed?

    I love that color, plus I have the shoes to match.

  14. 07.22.2010

    O.M.G. LOVE. My favourite is this one: http://kellymoorebag.com/thebags/the-moore-bag-5.html

    I am a Facebook fan and a twitter follower.

    I will take a picture for you tonight.

    I need this bag. Then I can finally be rid of my hideous BACKPACK camera bag.

  15. 07.22.2010

    Oh my!

    LOVE this one:http://kellymoorebag.com/womens/the-moore-bag-2.html

    Joined Facebook Group, Followed on Twitter…
    Will get that picture AFTER soccer and church stuff tonight!! I am with sam. My backpack bag…well…you will see it in the picture, but here is a preview: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/497103-REG/National_Geographic_NG_5159_NG_5159_Earth_Explorer_Small.html

    and no, I have never been on safari!

  16. 07.22.2010

    Ok, I have a selfy-pee I just happened to take yesterday. And funny enough, it does show my camera equipment (which I tagged, in case you can’t tell what is what).

  17. 07.23.2010

    OK – braving an entry here.
    1 red b-hobo bag is defintely my favourite… closely followed by the fuschia classic
    2. &3. followed and joined.
    4. Hmmm. Yes… the portait requirement. Well it’s here: http://corymbia.wordpress.com/2010/07/23/me-and-my-dodgy-camera-bag/ but you’ll notice the only camera equipment is my dodgy camera bag in the background (great black lump of a thing). I’m not technomalogical enough to take a photo that includes the camera I’m using to take the photo with so the bag will have to do….

  18. 07.23.2010

    At the present I don’t have a cool camera bag. In haste I just bought a basic black, over-priced bag when I bought my camera. If I had to pick I would most likely chose the same one you have…funny how our tastes have always been so similar.


    And I already follow, subscribe and stalk! LOL!

  19. I love the classic bag in purple.

  20. I just followed Kelly Moore on twitter – I’m @racheltayse

  25. 07.23.2010

    Ah.. Finally, a bag that can hold a laptop and camera that doesn’t look like a bulky camera bag.

  44. You know I love these bags. We have talked about it! My heart bursts for not one, but two of the, in particular.

    The Cranberry Crock Classic (http://kellymoorebag.com/womens/the-moore-bag-1.html) makes me cry crocodile tears until my creased eyes are lined with cracked craters. (Because I don’t have it. And I needs it.)

    The Teal Hobo bag (http://kellymoorebag.com/womens/kelly-moore-b-hobo-bag-4.html) inspires me to dance on my tippy toes, but if I had to sleep on park benches in blue underwear covered with nothing but yesterday’s newspaper to get it? I SO WOULD. I REALLY, REALLY WOULD.

    So there.

    I would also answer every email anyone ever sent me. That’s hard to do, you know.


  45. Aaaaaand, I just followed @kellymooreclark on Twitter.


  46. Oh, hai. I also just joined the Kelly Moore Group on Facebook.

    Why, yes, I DO WANT THE BAG.

  47. Doesn’t she? It’s so true. :)

    I joined the Facebook group and am following her on Twitter.

  49. 07.27.2010

    While I think the purple bag is yummy, if it came down to REALLT+Y choosing I would pick the classic bag in grey because I would be able to ALWAYS use it as an accessory. Did I mention it would be an uber yummy accessory …. cause it would.

  50. I love the B-Hobo bag in Heather Grey. Love it!!

  51. I now follow Kelly Moore on Twitter

  52. Joined the Kelly Moore facebook group

  53. I’ve never had a camera bag before and love these! I really want the B-hobo in heather grey. Like a lot!
