It’s fall here in Wisconsin, so I had to share a fall photo. Betty Davidson supplied me with another lovely picture she took (my guess in Minnesota somewhere since that is where she lives), so I thought I’d share it.

Smith places them in miniature dioramas and uses forced perspective to make parts of the real world lend his pictures additional realism. The result is a quirky sort of historical fiction – faithfully and authentically reproduced scenes from a small American town that never actually happened (but could have).
What’s also great about his Elgin Park collection is that the magician is willing to…
