I just lost an hour to Jason Travis’s Persona set. It’s similar to the What’s in Your Bag pool on Flickr, but you get to see the person behind the stuff.
I often used to ask to look through friends’ wallets and bags, and I’m especially fascinated by folks who carry almost nothing with them. I tend to be a pack mule, I feel like it affords me more opportunities for spontaneity if I have my stuff in tow. In fact, after looking through these photos, I’d like to start carrying around a switchblade, a tiny bottle of airplane tequila, and my passport. You never know.
What do you always have with you when you leave home?

A few days ago, Hank finally figured out how to use the viewfinder on a camera.
Ever since, he’s been crying when I won’t let him use my delicate, precious SLR.
So we hightailed got him his own kid-friendly digital camera, which he hasn’t put it down since. Seeing the world from his perspective has been awesome.

You have 15,000 photos on your hard drive and nothing on your walls. Here are a few clever ways to display snapshots quickly and change them out often. Go ahead and hit print.
Say! Wired magazine just interviewed my genius friend Margaret Stewart for 5 Secrets of YouTube’s Success, and they used one of my photos.
So for the next month I’ll be dressing in psychedelic hues and accessorizing with a copy of Wired casually opened to that page.
These are some of my favorite photos from our trip, but you can see all my snapshots here and here.
So as not to be sleazy, this is the part where I remind you that Intel paid for my trip. They’re sponsoring my Mighty Life List over the next few months. So this post is technically part of a very smart marketing campaign. Shield your eyes!
