I've just been looking at an article concerning Atlanta photographer Jason Travis, who cheekily went around asking strangers if he could photograph the contents of their bags, and I thought it might be interesting (?) to see what was inside mine.
My wallet (of course)
3 receipts from an ATM machine
A small note pad marked 'Car Only'
Car keys (they're usually in the car, but I can't be bothered to explain)
My Ray Bans
A red spotted handkerchief
A tiny plastic bag
A safety pin
A two inch nail
And just over €23 in wretched coins
I think that's pretty conservative. No half-eaten boiled sweets stuck to the bottom, no mouldy Scotch egg, and no ancient well-thumbed copy of Health and Efficiency.
I even surprised myself!
