I have been holding onto this camera body for several months waiting for a challenge to use it in =)

I bought this camera with a Nikon 55mm f/3.5 macro lens on it for $30 on ebay, they lens works like a charm, but the body is shot... I had several other ideas for this challenge, but I decided to go with this one...

I didn't want to completely wreck teh body so i lined the inside of the camera with tape to keep the dirt from getting in everywhere... it kept the dirt out but I ended up mashing the shutter cuirtain and the mirror... no biggie... I only want it for it's outside appearance for pics...

I used my brand new Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8 DX lens, it works awesome!!!

I have setup pics, i'll post them later,

PM me if I forget =)

I completely agree with the others. This should have rocked the votes. Great shot.

This should have finished much higher than it did! I agree - HIGHLY underrated shot.

I can't stop laughing. Outside the scope of the challenge, but its laugh out loud funny and very cleverly executed. Who cares - give it a ten for execution.
