getting creative with old lenses

hey there!

I kind of forgot about this forum, but a recent purchase both gave rise to increased interest in photography and a desire to share my experiences.

I got the inspiration from and bought an old russian Zenit 3M. I drilled a hole in a camera house cap and used some sealant to attach the Zenit's Helios-44 58mm f/2.0. The result was amazing, I absolutely love the lens in every way. I have to use fully manual controls without auto focus, which adds to the feel of every photo being a creation by me. The total price came down to $36 (€25), and you can find some of the results in my photo blog, for example:

I thought this could be a thread where we share similar experiences and help each other out.
