I've Been Feeling a Little Flat

Sunday, November 09, 2014 Dalton Primeaux

Ah, the flat lay image... All the cool kids are doing it. It's so simple, and yet such an effective way to display all your favorite belongings. I can't lie. I'm a sucker for a good flat lay.

Just the other week, I returned home after a long day at work, tossed my belongings on the floor, threw my coat over a chair and dived into bed for a nap. When I awoke I realized my pile of junk actually looked kind of cool. A few small tweaks, and... holy shit! It's a flat lay! Which soon lead to a few more flat lays and eventually inspired this "what's in my bag" post.
