Lens Hood

Bought a new lens hood today :) I got it for rm 50 at a shop called Investline in front of Center Point. A lens hood is a device used on the end of a lens to block the sun or other light source in order to prevent glare and lens flare. And it looks cool too ;p

I used my sister's 2.1mp Nikon Coolpix 775 to take this photo, which came out pretty good even though its quite an old camera ;p

Update: Turns out, I cant use it with my Kit Lens [Pictured Above] because the hood rotates with the front element of the lens as the lens focuses [rendering the hood useless]. So then I bought a 52mm to 58mm step up adapter so that my 50mm lens can use the hood instead :)
