Not disturbing, but certainly strange...and not particularly attractive. I'd rather just put my old photography equipment on a book self.

I would have given a couple bucks for that RB67 body. I don't think I like taking usable bodies or lenses and rendering them unusable. The cameras you see on that page had usable parts and might have kept an old camera going a little longer. It seems wasteful.
That wouldn't apply just to cameras, either. On the bright side, someone took pictures of those flowerpots.

Well, it isn't disturbing, but sure discussible - as art always is. Not everyones taste (definitve not mine) - but I have to admit it is an original idea.

Disturbing? Why? Not a bad idea for broken lenses and bodies but not for me. As for it being art, well it is art in some form I imagine but I don't think they look very good as plant pots. It is still a very imaginative use for the lenses and bodies, not something that would have come to me to with the equipment, I would have just used them as props
