How I carry my digital SLR lens hood

Before, I realized I could do this, I rarely ended up using the lens hood on my digital SLR.
But while I was walking around, I saw a professional photographer who had his hood mounted in reverse on the lens.
I tried it and it worked. Now I can carry the hood with me all the time and use it more often than I used to previously.
Below you can see the 2 ways in which the hood has been mounted on to the lens (the first one is the in use position and the 2nd one is the storage position - which you can see makes it easy to store it in your camera bag)

This is OK as long as you don't want to manually focus your lens. The hood covers the focusing ring.
