I had a little fun with an HDR I took of the Oakley Headquarters in Foothill Ranch. Looks like a spaceship cruising in the clouds. Have fun with your photos and sometimes think outside the box! =)

Palm Springs, CA – Forever Marilyn


From the wonderful and relaxing Palm Springs, CA you can find the amazing statue of Marilyn Monroe in her famous pose. Some info from the web:

The 26-foot-tall 34,000 pound sculpture manufactured in New Jersey of painted stainless steel and aluminum, is a super-sized sculptural tribute to Marilyn Monroe’s iconic scene from Billy Wilder’s 1955 infidelity comedy, The Seven-Year Itch, with the figure imitating the instant that a blast of air raises her dress. It was built in New Jersey before being transported to Pioneer Court, part of the Magnificent Mile section of Michigan Avenue, Chicago. In May 2012, Forever Marilyn was moved from Pioneer Court to Palm Springs, California. It is now located in downtown on the corner of Palm Canyon Drive and Tahquitz Canyon Way.

If you live or are visiting Palm Springs…go see it soon…I hear it is there only until June 2013. Next stop…unknown.
