A different kind of Christmas image, but the wish is still the same ....... Merry Christmas to All!

(This is probably the closest "selfie" I will ever produce)

Nice creation, Bob, and a Merry Christmas to you too! I knew you'd come up with an original seasonal image to share with us!

Actually, it's not a lens at all. It's a glass globe I received from Wachovia when I did some database work for them.

Well, not a "lens" in the formal manner, but you are using it as lens in this image. You are capturing the Christmas tree refracted through it. ;)
