John Lennon's Tooth

Liz Taylor's baubles raked in a cool $150 mill but I thought somebody cashing out $40,000 for one of John Lennon's teeth was pretty cool. If I'd known that I wouldn't have given all my juveniles to the tooth fairy for a  shilling a pop. I'd have saved them for when I was famous like John.
After you've exhausted yourself taking scintillating pics of chocolate box landscapes and roses in vases you might consider creating a few boring images of everyday experiences like your urologist preparing  your colonoscopy, your local policewoman having a whopper at Hungry Jacks or your favourite dentist drilling your teeth.
I used my Sigma 15mm fish-eye (this is one fun lens) to shoot my favourite dentist Tina, (not Turner) replacing a  gold bridge;  just marginally less expensive than replacing the Golden Gate Bridge in San Fransisco. I know  there's a word for when you pay an attractive woman hard-earned money to inflict pain on you but I can't think what it is. Unless its lawyer or accountant.
Be brave, be innovative and take your camera with you and record the world and your life. You may own lots of cameras but you only own one life.
