Recycling for shutterbugs: Turn lenses into flowerpots

Photojojo suggests you turn defunct cameras into flowerpots and grow plants in them. It's a cool idea for the environmentally conscious.

Lens flower pot

I'm really glad all the cameras I have are still functional, but I'm sure there will come a day when one of them refuses to fire the shutter, or worse, has a damaged circuit. When that day comes, I'll refer back to this article.

Photoblog Photojojo has a nice writeup on what you can do with your spoiled cameras, though most of it applies only to film-based shooters. The Web site suggests you turn these defunct gizmos into a flowerpot and grow plants in them. From lenses to camera bodies, it seems almost anything can be converted into a unique piece of green art.

In my cupboard I have an old Canon EF 50mm F1.8 lens that has been severely infected by fungus. So perhaps I'll remove the lens and turn it into a flowerpot. Anyone want to see me grow flowers out of my lens? Put your request below.
