Use a Nutella Lid as a 72mm Lens Cap

Here’s your completely random photography fact of the day: Nutella lids can double as lens caps. Belgian photography enthusiast Frans Leys lost the 72mm cap to his 18-200mm Nikon lens, but found that the cap from his 220g jar of Nutella was a perfect fit. 220g isn’t the standard size sold in the US, but can be found in some shops.

Collect Photos of Everyday Objects for a Fun Photo Project

If you’re looking for an interesting photo project to undertake, you can try starting a collection through photos. While you could go all out and try shooting the alphabet on the back of 18-wheelers over four years, collecting ordinary objects can produce neat photographs as well. Flickr user sarcoptiform shot the above photos of beverage lids collected in the 90’s and 00’s. They also collected photos of stickers found on fruit and tea tags.
