Cat Jones digs details. You can see it in the way she photographs her garden. And you can see it in her choice of camera bag — the chestnut Brooklyn satchel. An avid gardener, Cat set out “to create a fluid, real time journal” of her garden on her blog, thewhimsicalgardener. “It amazes me how much of our world goes unnoticed,” Cat says. “And with macro photography and beautiful, natural light I can capture and reveal secret moments that happen daily in my garden.”
Using her Nikon D7000 and, most often, an AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm 1:2.8, Cat is always on the lookout for the next great shot. “My heart is full when I spy some little critter, a bird, a lizard or the late slant of afternoon light on a golden leaf. When I capture that magical quality of light, I’m elated!”
We’re elated that Cat is enjoying using her Brooklyn satchel as she captures these and other special moments. “I love everything about my bag! It’s made of beautiful, durable leather…It is roomy enough to tuck my wallet, phone, keys and lip gloss into along with my camera and lenses, allowing me to carry only one bag. All in all, it’s just a gorgeous and functional camera bag.”
