It's a great photo...that's it. I don't think she is actually reading that book.

I like it because, here's this meagstar doing such a pedestrian thing, in such a blasé environment. Plus it's got that old time feeling to it with the park ride and the graininess of the pic. Very simple.

I use to love that ride. Marilyn could make the simplest things look enticing and beautiful. I don't believe there is model today that can project a mood or ambiance the way she could.
