I love the image. I have two bags a tallee and an old messenger bag  
with photo insert. The tallee has much too much velcro - impossible  
to open one handed, the velcro is capable of lifting the weight of  
the bag, and NOISY. I like the layout and weird colours. I also have  
a laptop sleeve which is perfect.
