In a short period of time I have amassed a great collection of photography related items. When I go anywhere even remotely interesting I bring my gear. My kids complain that there is not enough room in the car for them when I have my gear with me. They think it is embarrassing. They are worried that I am just a lens away from becoming this guy:

Very cute, totally incognito. Fits plenty of gear and has room leftover for my wallet, phone, and sunglasses. It looks so much like my purse that my kids might not have even realized that it is a camera bag yet, making unexpected teenage photo ops much more successful:
