My beard experiment has ended. As part of the journey, I did an experimental time lapse, above. As you will see, I slowly shaved my beard and rotated the chair. I should have thought more about exposure consistency between frames. Doing it inside would have worked better but I thought the outside view was more interesting.
I admit that a few hours later I am still occasionally reaching up to stroke my beard, and finding nothing there.
I took a break when my mustache was in full flight and posed with Melissa. As you can tell by her expression, she loved the 'stache.
