Cracked Lens

I had an accident a few days ago in which my lens made contact with cement.  Thanks and praise, I had a lens filter on just in case.  It was bent out of shape and I had to have it sawed off, but my lens survived.  Undamaged.  However, in between the injury and hospital, I took a few shots because I loved the way they were turning out.  Unfortunately though, they could not salvage my filter.  Looks like I will just have to buy one and break it so I can continue to take pictures like this.
