Funny Photo Equipment!
Challenge has finished
There are situations where you simply have to invent a solution for your photographing needs. Many photographers will attempt to construct or adapt what they require; others will merely try to buy the missing piece and sadly drop their ideas if such a thing isn't readily available. Show us what you have built or adapted to aid you in your photography! Sometimes the „funny“ can also be something genuinely useful – and vice versa. Please observe the Rules, also see the Intro to the Series (click at Laugh@Life above) for additional information, so your entry won't fall off...

I built this rig to photograph the Transit of Venus across the Sun in 2004. The telescope bends and focuses the light down the garbage bin towards a piece of paper. You could then look into the bin and photograph the result. On the bottom right photo the black dot on the Sun is Venus, completely safe to look at and enlarged enough so that a cheap Point and Shoot (Fuji A303) could image it.
