While I was in Amsterdam, I spent a couple of hours wondering around the city on my own, and discovered a wonderful handbag store called Smaak Amsterdam and immediately fell in love with about 5 different bags. I was particularly drawn to the yellow bags, although the pink and they grey bags were also fabulous. They have the option of adding a funky thick strap, which I didn’t do, although I kinda of wish I had. Next time 😉

So, here’s my five minutes with this gorgeous bag, the James, in yellow.

I just love the shape so much. The colour is fabulous, and looks great with black. The bag also comes with a longer strap, so you can wear it cross body, or on one shoulder. Also, the bag has a clip inside that lets you cinch the sides in to give the shape above. However, you can undo that clip to create a wider, more tote-style shape. So I took some more shots to show you that:

Would you like to join in the RegularRandom crew? Here’s how:

Version 1:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post


Version 2:

  • choose an object
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • put the object in different locations to see how the background or surroundings can change the way the object looks
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Looking forward to seeing your shots.
