FALL FASHION-DALIDA TURQUOISE with GREEN LEAVES French Bag- 9 pockets, originally uploaded by IKABAGSPARIS.
I love the look of this bag, being a fan of messenger type styles. A plus for me is the strap that is long enough to wear crossed over my shoulder, which distributes the weight of the purse more evenly on my body.

"Add this to my list of favorite purses of this fall. I love this heathered shade of green. It's not loud or dark, just perfect, in my opinion. The handles are a woven leather-like material that really work well with this purse."
Beautiful green wool purse~

Love the bag~
"i've been meaning to do one of these for ages! so this was the contents of my bag on 25th August 2009. i also usually have my camera in there too (it just about fits!) but of course i was using it to take the photo :p this does me for during the summer but when i go back to college i'll need a bigger bag for the ludicrous amount of stuff i cart around with me! unfortunately my satchel is about an inch too small to fit my macbook :("
This photographer says:
"It's the Coach Bonnie Leather Convertible bag. It's going to be used as a tote for college.
Once again, this bag is from the 30% off section from Macy's Coach area.
The inside is a candy pinkish red. It is a very gorgeous color and pairs nicely with the patent leather handle. The photo of course, does not do the inside satin justice!
I've grown fond of the items in the 30% off section. It's like a shelter for bags-that-people-didn't-want-at-full-price that just beckons to me.
Oh, this is my new photoshoot area. WIMBs and bag portraits are going to be attempted to be taken here. It is the top of my bookcase. I figured that it was more cleaner than the carpet, which is easier for me to take pictures of (so that Dad and Chris don't think I'm crazy) and I don't have to clean the bags later because of the germs that might have gotten on to it when I was taking the picture. Yes, I take very good care of my bags; no one knows how long I've had it because they always look brand new. And yes, I am obsessed with cleaning them. They are my children. Consider me like the Angelina Jolie of bags."

Tsuru: The Japanese Crane
Throughout history, birds have been viewed as animals of special value and have been endowed with meanings often drawn from legends and stories that have endured over many generations.
For the Japanese, the crane—or tsuru—is considered a national treasure, appearing in art, literature, and folklore. The Japanese regard the crane as a symbol of good fortune and longevity because of its fabled life span of a thousand years. It also represents fidelity, as Japanese cranes are known to mate for life. Over time, the crane has also evolved as a favorite subject of the Japanese tradition of paper folding—origami—as children and adults attempt to master this art.
Shortly after the end of World War II, the folded origami cranes came to symbolize a hope for peace through Sadako Sasaki and her unforgettable story of perseverance. Diagnosed with leukemia after being exposed to radiation after the bombing of Hiroshima, Sadako became determined to reach a goal of folding 1,000 cranes in hopes of being rewarded with health, happiness, and a world of eternal peace. Although she died before reaching her goal, the tradition of sending origami cranes to the Hiroshima memorial has endured as a symbol of the Japan’s ongoing wish for nuclear disarmament and world peace.

27/365 - Olympics Mittens (the real ones not the cookies!), originally uploaded by floyvr.
You know how I love red. . .
After 3 hours of Olympics volunteer training at the figure skating venue and another hour to get home due to a late bus, I was pretty grumpy and tired.
Since we weren't allowed to take photos of the venue (that was going to be my Project 365 shot!) I went with the $10 Olympic mittens - they were sold out at The Bay department store (they're the sponsor and purveyor of Canada's Olympic clothing line) but restocked last week.
I also got to test out the black background with the DIY light box but as you can see the box is a tad small as this is as far away as I can get.
Strobist: 430 EX II through top of DIY light box on a light stand, 1/32 power zoomed to 105 mm to keep background darkish. Sorry I forgot the setup shot :( "
