Okay okay, so maybe we went too far this year.

As I've said before, Mistah sometimes gets tired of old-fashioned representational photography. So we tweaked this year. Okay, allright, we tweaked Big. Okay, fine, we tweaked Majorly. Mightily, even. Does that make us bad people?

It almost certainly probably does not.

For those of you who are *not* Hsin, and haven't unlocked the mystery, here's how to create the Perfect Christmas Card that only one friend will figure out:

Send Mistah out on a beautiful day to take a photo of the beautiful sun shining through a beautiful tree over the beautiful water across the street from Ocean Beach:

Oh, wait. Crop out that house.

There it is.

Now add some Schleckeffects:

Add a dash of holiday cheer:

VoilĂ !

I knew what it was all along. And so did Hsin.

Happy Everything, Everybody!

I thought it was something like that, but did not clearly see the tree and sun. etc. Thanks for letting us in on the secret, Ellie. A dash of holiday cheer, indeed.

Merry, Merry!
