Selective Focus: Cabin Fever

While it has been too warm to be stuck inside contracting the negative strain of cabin fever (Winter will no doubt find us), this week we can emphasize the phrase’s positive connotations. Such retreats represent our desires to simplify, to get away from the dissonance and clutter of what we ordinarily deem important. They foreground necessity and diminish the superfluous, and manifest our plainest requirements for dwelling; heat, light, a water source, a welcoming entry, maybe a window to gaze from or peer into.

Given expected highs of 3 degrees by Sunday, next week’s theme will be “gelid.” Send your iciest unwatermarked, signature-less images by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m to tim @ perfectduluthday.com — 1000px at their largest dimension — along with title (if any), and URL of your website, Facebook page, Flickr stream, or Instagram.

Tricked me with your photo, Tim - even though you've been posting close-ups of miniatures on Facebook for the last few days, my first thought was that it was from the air. :P Just out of curiosity, are these all through the window, or have you been wandering around inside the model train display?

They're from the cheap seats Aaron, though I'd love a backstage pass (hint, hint). Some incredible artistry in that display. Word to the wise: becoming a member of the Duluth Art Institute gains you free all access to the Depot, and related St. Louis County Historical Society collections. The new Ojibwe gallery and Eastman Johnson works are especially grand.

Thanks for the heads up! 

I've spent my fair share of time at the Depot with the kids, including at the model trains.  There's a world of detail in there. Would be fun to get really close for the purposes of taking photos and/or making subtle modifications.
