This isn't a new icon, nor is it the first time it's been seen in this space. I created it several weeks ago, and asked people to vote on whether it should be my new default icon. It didn't win, but I was fond of it, so I tucked it away and resolved to bring it out at some point in the future. Welcome to the future!
The picture I used to create this icon was taken in December at Northside Park in Wheaton, Illinois. It was my first attempt to use the auto-timer on my camera. Well, the first successful attempt. The first time didn't work because I did it wrong.
