Niagara

Several months ago, when I first discovered Mr. FF and I were going to be moving across Canada to Ontario, I had promised to make a trip to Niagara Falls to take a photo inspired by Marilyn Monroe's own Niagara pics. Well, last month, we ended up making a split decision to hit the Niagara Wine region to do some winery tours and then decided last minute to visit the Falls, since they were nearby. It was a cold day and since we were planning to muck around muddy vineyards, I had dressed more like Amelia Earhart than Marilyn, but I still got my hubby to snap some pictures of myself sitting near the place (or maybe in the exact same spot) where a famous photo of Ms. Monroe had once been taken. It was really cool to imagine being where she once had been. I have some other pics from the niagara visit I may post (mostly for family) later on. Right now, my dog is batting at me for his walk. I'm such a slave to his Majesty.

What a gorgeous photo! The image is so crisp, the colours wonderfully pronounced. You look so beautiful and I'm sure MM would smile to hear core knowing you were there emulating her own photos from the Falls.


Have a splendid Saturday, honey!

Looks gorgeous. It is so crazy hot here in Sydney at the moment, I quite fancy sitting that close to a heaving wall of water.

although there are SWARMS of people all around (not fun if you are claustrophobic), the Falls ARE impressive (esp. the view from the Canadian side....we didn't see them from the US, so of course I'm being completely biased here).

oh, thanks gels. No one can compete with the sultry Ms. Marilyn Monroe, though ;)

How surreal it must have been to be sitting in the exact same spot as Marilyn Monroe! Gorgeous backdrop and photos!!
