43 of 52: Yaginuma 2009 New Year Card

For this year's card we felt we had to dedicate it to our renewed hope for America. At first we were considering something more directly associated with Obama, but I believe that would be the wrong message. Obama is the personification of the renewed hope, but the promise he represents is up to all of us to fulfill or not. If America is to succeed then we must be prepared to work towards that success. So I went with a more pure representation of America. Started with a CC licensed flag photo from wmc1111card and added an image of Tesla and another one of Mie and I, along with some photoshop artistic filters and the removal of an distractingly dissonant image on my shirt :)
