My New Year's Resolution: 40x30.

[Process: Take a 1024x768 webcam picture. Resize image to 40x30. Resize image back to 1024x768. Sit your laptop on a dresser facing a window and display image on screen. Drop your 50mm lens off of dresser and break it in half, permanently destroying it. Hold broken lens in front of camera to take picture that includes silhouette of beard reflected off the screen.]

My other New Year's Resolution: Not to destroy another camera lens. Also, to lose 30 pounds.

When life gives you broken lenses, make broken lens-monade!

Broken lenses are so sad. Today's photo is still great however, and very much in line with many of your earlier photos.
