That's cute. I like it very much. Did this exist in reality?

The diorama was inspired by my childhood where I was always playing in a derelict airplane and a cannon that was at the wharf in Eureka CA. I remember as kids we were always looking for the abandoned truck, plane or military vehicle. We would have hours of fun imagining adventures in space or in an exotic land. Today it is hard for our kids to play like that.

I looked through the window over the green fields, and saw row on row, sharply white against the green, rising with the hill and dropping again into the hollows-keeping a firm line as they had been taught to do-a battalion on its last parade. The Cenotaph and no one there? That can never be.

...reminds me of going to Fort Casey and playing on the 10" disappearing carriages. Fun stuff.
