So I’m going to try something new. Or something old. Depends on how you look at it.
I haven’t been carrying a briefcase the last couple of years. I used to carry my laptop with me back and forth to work and just generally around, but then as I got more and more into photography I started carrying the camera bag instead. I just wanted my SLR on me all the time. And the bag had a spot for my laptop, so I had that, but I never had room for anything else. Ir was all about the camera.
Well, my new laptop is too big for my old camera bag. It fits in my new camera bag, but that’s too big to carry around everywhere, and really, I don’t use the SLR that much. So I bought a new laptop bag.
My plan is to try carrying just my laptop and my point and shoot around for a bit, sort of like a normal person, and see how that treats me.
On the other hand, the photographer in me maintains, "why would you want to be like normal people anyway?"
