Bird Kingdom

If you're interested in how people see and enjoy books like, say, John Berger's Ways of Seeing or Susan Sontag's On Photography, you'd likely enjoy Geoff Dyer's latest book The Ongoing Moment.
He surveys photography by examining how various photographers treated various subjects, e.g. hats, and what it all means. Fun read.

Curiosities at Niagara Falls

When the Niagara River below the Falls froze over "Until 1912,visitors were allowed to actually walk out on the ice bridge and view the Falls from below. February 24th of 1888 the local newspaper reported that at least 20,000 people watched or tobogganed on the ice. Shanties selling liquor, photographs and curiosities abounded. On February 4th 1912 the ice bridge broke up and three tourists lives were lost."

Well the shanties selling photographs have been replaced by 4D movies but, other than that the liquor and curiosities truly do abound. Haunted house followed by inn followed by wax museum then pizza place then cuban cigars then haunted house then the crimianls wax museum then the gentlemen's club then inn after inn after inn.. very curious.
