Hi, just wanted to introduce myself as I've been lurking around for a while and thought it was about time I registered myself on here.
I'm Simon and I am huge long time Marilyn fan. since around 1986.
Sounds a bit corny how I became a fan but as a child growing up I always loved the song Candle in the Wind and although I knew it was about this lady Marilyn Monroe, I was too young to really understand or care about the meaning behind the song. Only when I was older, in my teens and going through difficult times at home that I began to really listen to the words and wonder who this person really was and I soon became completely enchanted with the person and the legend
While all my friends would have posters on their bedroom walls of the pin ups of the day, Cindy Crawford or whoever, I would have posters, pictures, calendars & books of MM! I think maybe some people thought it a bit weird but to me she was more than just a pin up, I felt our lives had a much in common and like everyone else, I suppose I just wished that I could have been friends her & that I might have been able to help her in some way.
Anyway I'm so glad to have found somewhere that is keeping the memory of the wonderful Marilyn alive and people that love her as much as I do.

Best wishes to you all. x

Hi Simon (IMG: Welcome. I remember when I first discovered ES.
So many new images I had never seen before.
So many things I never knew about Marilyn. I was amazed.
It took me a while to finally stop snooping and say Hi.

Here's some of my favorite threads:

Paparazzi And Candid Pictures, Not posing, caught on the moment

James Haspiel, All Pictures

Brentwood, have a look at Marilyn's last home (where she died)

And of course, all the photographers' threads, Milton Greene being my very favorite

President Kennedy's Birthday Gala, May 19, 1962
