San Francisco via Diana Lens

While I slowly make my way through all my Death Valley/Nevada photos, I thought I'd share some photos I took last month with my Diana lens. I've had this lens for more than a year, but I never use it because it doesn't sit on my camera very well. Anyway, I purposely went out the other day with it on and no back-up lens -- so I just had to deal with it falling off (which it only did once).

So what is a Diana lens? It is a cheap plastic (thus, why it falls off all the time) lens that does something funky to the colors in your photos. I know it seems odd to want this distortion when I have such a fancy camera, but sometimes I like to try to be artsy-fartsy.
