Weegee Photo Boothing Marilyn  SEP 25 2007

Speaking of Weegee, I stumbled across some photos he made based on his well-known portrait of Marilyn Monroe.

He created the funhouse photos by manipulating negatives and distorting the light falling on the photographic paper from the enlarger. They remind me of images captured by OS X's Photo Booth with the distortion filters on.
