The National Museum of American History is a rather odd place. The exhibit on transportation was especially odd. The exhibit is populated by grey figures. The effect is quite disturbing. Ghosts from an unhappy past. Click on the image for a larger view.

The Doll House

Curiously, the National Museum of American History has a five-story, 23-room doll house. Two parents, two grandparents, ten children, five servants, and twenty pets inhabit this structure. This is an elaborate toy that allows children to play with toy children that play with toy toys. Click on the image for a larger view.

Summer Clouds

Naomi and I have taken a bit of a break from the blog. As long-time readers have noticed, we have been moving quite a bit over the last few years. When we started Hakusan Creation in 2013, we focused on our life in rural Maine. We have also shared many stories from our travels. Over the next few months, Naomi and I will be evaluating the direction we would like to take with our blog and the stories we would like to share. We will of course continue to share our photography. We hope you will continue this journey with us.
