I ‘got’ an Epiphanie!!

No, I didn’t ‘have’ an epiphanie, I got one. An Epiphanie camera bag that is.

My Canon camera bag is nice, but let’s face it, it’s more of a ‘man’ bag. It’s big and bulky and very hard to get in and out of. Being in a wheelchair it’s very hard to carry around along with my purse, phone, and well you know! lol

From the Epiphanie FB page:

Our mission is to save cameras from being banged around in purses, while liberating stylish women photographers from the Manbag.

Being in a wheelchair, the Epiphanie Bag is the solution for me! I can put the strap cross-body and lie it in my lap. It will be easy access AND carry all my other necessities of life. I’ll finally be able to have my camera with me. I cannot wait for it to arrive. The biggest and only problem I had on the site was deciding which one to buy! lol It took me over an hour. My daughter Ashley was the tie breaker.

The winner is:

Ginger in black

I did my research as well. There are ‘other’ bags [which will remain nameless] similar to this, but the comments and posts I read in forums, came right back to Epiphanie.

I must also thank my friend and fabulous photographer, Jen, for sharing the link to Epiphanies FB page.

I highly recommend checking out Epiphanie and joining their FB page if you are a female photographer looking for a new and stylish way to carry all your camera needs. Now, we do not want to leave the men out in the cold as there are many men who are secure in their identities that may love these as well. 😀

Drop on by, check them out, and tell ’em Tracy sent you! 😉

So there you have it… I GOT an Epiphanie!!!

Peace out!

PS: The Lyric in yellow and Lola in red I love as well. *hint hint* family and friends!! 😛

Photography

One of the things I would love to do more of is photography. The problem is my damn wheel-chariot. It makes it hard to shoot what I find intriguing. Abandoned buildings, homes, hospitals, cemeteries. Places with history. Roger bought me an awesome Canon EOS with all the gadgets and gizmos along with a big ole zoom lens. It is something that makes me smile. We also have a couple of amazing 35mm film cameras.

I am a huge fan of a FaceBook site: Another State Of Mind Urban Exploration . They also have a shop here: Another State Of Mind . Their photography and their eye is extraordinary. I urge you to like their FaceBook page as well as check out their shop. As most of my friends know I have a love for the unusual, paranormal, etc. The Asylums and abandoned buildings they find and shoot are first rate. I joke that I am living vicariously through their lens. Which, in all actuality, is no joke.

There are some amazing places in California I am finding with histories and even hauntings. I am hoping to one day be able to go to some of them and shoot some photos. Praying for some sort of crippled access. lol

Depression is a huge part of my Multiple Sclerosis, seeing the photos from Another State of Mind makes me smile, and imagining the stories behind the photos is so intriguing. I would love to show you some examples of their work, but copyright is very important to me. So I implore you to go check out their sites. You will be glad you did.

xx, Tracy...
