cold, cold water.

I force-cultured myself down to the American Art Museum last week for Annie Leibovitz's Pilgramage; the exhibit was BEAUTIFUL (Elvis's shot-out television and the Annie Oakley photos were my favorite), but is it weird that I left strangely disappointed by the real-life size of the above photo of Niagara Falls? DON'T GET ME WRONG - if tasked with carrying it out of the gallery I would have been all arms-spread-wide-struggling, but THAT PHOTO has been fronting the collection - and as impactful as it is to look at I imagined it would be huge, ON PAPER. It was not, but it does still swallow you up (even if only IN THEORY).
