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.
