Hi everyone!

I thought I'd announce tomorrow's Fun Friday early to give you all time to ponder!

This week's theme was recently suggested by our very own queen of poetry, SuziBlue!

The idea is simply to come up with 101 (or as many as you can think of) practical uses for a camera which is no longer working.

Get your thinking caps on...the more imaginative the better!

Have fun!
Tracey.

How "not working" can it be ? I mean, a camera with a 600mm lens may be so broken it can't take pictures but can still be used to spy on ones neighbours.

Something to hand over to the "privacy police" when caught take picture in public places without a model release form from every person in view.

If the flash is still working, you could do what I used to do... take the flash unit out, keep the battery attached, add a push button to the circuit, then wrap it in tinfoil. Makes for a fun time giving it to people and telling them to 'squeeze it!' hahahahaha! Dont give to people with heart conditions though - it hurts a bit!

Attach to the outside of your house, and claim its a state of the art security camera and CCTV system.

You could hide your spare keys in the film compartment. If its digital, then you cant.

Pretend to load it with film or memory card and dream about taking a stunning image that would become an Editors Choice.

You could use it as a good excuse to purchase the latest model of camera that you've had your eye on for months, but couldnt justify it to your partner. Now the old faithfull is broken, you just must have the new one.
