The Secret Life of Dioramas

I discovered a new passion this past week while on vacation in British Columbia. I had left my camera at home and thus had to buy a new cheap one for use on the trip. We happened to visit the Museum of Miniatures in Victoria; it was filled with 80+ dioramas of scenes from history and fantasy. At the museum I started testing the camera's macro lens on some of the little objects in the scenes, and discovered what a different story they tell when looked at up close. Tiny little figures frozen in time and place, poetically posed, dusty and still.

What Are You Looking At?

If you've ever been suspicious of those crows wandering around in your yard, you'll like my new Halloween card from Great Arrow. Great Arrow publishes gorgeous hand-silkscreened greeting cards that have a richness and saturation that cannot be replicated by standard lithography. You can read more about the company here. Hey and if you're inspired my card can be purchased online here.
