The Broken Lens Project

Last weekend, one of my camera lenses broke. It just stopped focusing altogether. Before I sent it back to Canon, however, I decided to do what everyone should do when life gives you lemons. Make art!

I went out and took photos of pretty things through a broken lens. Who says broken lenses are useless?

  5. These are lovely - they look like they've been fancily processed by photoshop.
