This photo of the Main Building was shot with a special-effects lens called a Lensbaby. Basically you take your really expensive highly engineered digital camera and snap a cheap piece of plastic where the really expensive lens should go. You have some control over the image but the fun is not knowing exactly what the effect will be. I think this is sort of how it feels to be on campus in early January. You have one eye sort of halfway open and your vision is blurred from the tears caused by the sting of the cold wind.
