Oh, to have been a fly on the wall...

A set of never-before-seen photos of Marilyn Monroe, taken six months before her death have gone up for sale. The candid shots are of Marilyn paying an unexpected visit to poet Carl Sandburg, who was a guest at photographer Len Steckler's NYC apartment.
Can you imagine being a fly on the wall of this encounter? That's exactly how the photographer described himself - just melting into his surroundings to capture this meeting between two icons. Can you also tell I'm an unabashed devotee of the tragic actress?
Prices for originals start at two grand - a great photographic art investment if you've got it lying around, but prints will also be available. Interested? Go here.
Ah, for the love of Marilyn!

I love the expression on Carl Sanburg's face! I think this lady had a lot more layers than she is given credit for! Thanks for sharing these!

She looks so happy and relaxed...I still believe her overdose was accidental.
