As summer comes, I think that you may do not want to wear <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>. It is said that if you want to put your ugg boots up, you had better place a support plate into the <b><a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-bailey-button-c-66.html" rel="nofollow">UGG Classic Boots</a></b>, if not, you may also use newspaper. The general newspaper is the best choice. When you use it, you can feel that it can help you avoid moisture and odor. You don&rsquo;t need to fill up, you just need to hold up slightly and to leave gaps. From <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots Outlet</b></a>.
is it durable and stiff enough though? for the purpose?<br /> <br /> There is another instructable here using a bottle cap to move the lens back and forth, and that seems more functional.<br />
First of all thanks for your comment. <br /> <br /> The lens described here may not be the most durable but you can build another one for under a dollar and it is stiff enough for mostly any indoor use.<br /> <br /> The idea behind this lens is not so much function as the unique visual effect you get when you take photographs through non-photographic optics. It also aims to teach that a commercial lens is nothing more than a hollow darkened tube with an image forming element.<br /> <br /> Hope this clears things up a little.<br />
