    Scare camera earns Niagara Falls haunted house worldwide recognition

    No Comments

    From 680 News:

    Laughing at others scared out of their wits is translating into big business and worldwide recognition for a Niagara Falls haunted house.

    Millions have clicked on the photos posted by Nightmares Fear Factory and their infamous scare camera — soldiers gripping each other in panic, a husband pushing his terrified wife in front of him for protection, mouths agape and eyes popping out.

    Owner Frank LaPenna couldn’t be happier at others’ terror.

    “I really wanted them to be shared,” he said of the photos. “I really wanted people to take them home and show their friends and that’s how it took off from there.”

    The app, available in the Apple App and Google Play stores, can be used as a tour guide while walking in the park, or a way to check out the attractions anywhere. It includes photos and stories about 17 sites in the state park, as well as an interactive map, videos and links to the gift shop.

    Earlier this week I was at the temporary Calendar Club store in the Pen Centre in St Catharines. I noticed several calendars that had pictures of Niagara Falls.

    Top 10 Canadian places featured on Instagram: From Vancouver International Airport to Niagara Falls

    No Comments

    From the National Post:

    Instagram recently revealed its list of the top places in Canada featured in Instagram photos this year. Given the size of the population (and some of the events going on this year), it’s not surprising that southern Ontario holds down seven of the top spots. You’ll also find British Columbia and Montreal. Here’s the list.

    1. Niagara Falls. One of the most photographed places in the world, Niagara Falls has been attracting tourists for centuries. You’ll get great shots from the boat rides below the falls with Hornblower Cruises, or you can try something in winter or at night with the floodlights on. Also worth trying is the Journey Behind the Falls, where you can take an elevator deep inside the rock behind the falls and also clamber out onto a platform for nice viewing.

    Interesting videos and pictures on Shutterstock

    The other day I came across a couple of nice Niagara Falls videos that were on Shutterstock. They all have a “shutterstock” watermark on the videos, so they are meant to be purchased. But I still thought it would be good to share the link. You can start at http://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-13214060-stock-footage-niagara-falls-canada-december-clifton-hill-tourist-area-in-niagara-falls-ontario-in-the.html to see some of them. Of course you can always do a search for whatever term you are interested in. There are both videos and photos.

    “The Comfort Inn Clifton Hill at the corner of Clifton Hill and Victoria Ave in Niagara Falls is being demolished. I took some pictures of the demolition. It is moving along with large gaps in the building now. From Victoria Avenue you can see Boston Pizza.

    These are pictures taken on Tuesday, November 17, 2015”

    Niagara Falls images on Pinterest

    Sometimes I’m a little slow…

    It wasn’t until just the other day that I considered what a great source for pictures of Niagara Falls that Pinterest could be. Somehow in one of my alert emails that I get, a pin by Susan Keltz showed up. It was a beautiful shot of the American Falls that was found on the Clifton Hill web site. I then just did a simple search for Niagara Falls, and saw all sorts of great pictures:

    Historic photos in Falls going digital

    No Comments

    From the Buffalo News:

    Many of the Niagara Falls Public Library’s historical pictures of the city are falling apart.

    That’s to be expected – some are 150 years old.

    The roughly 10,000 historic photographs in the archives of the Local History Department are being given new life thanks to a new digitization project at the library by City Historian Christopher R. Stoianoff.

    “There’s a need for it, that’s the biggest thing,” Stoianoff said when asked how the effort began.

    The photographs, contained in a half-dozen filing cabinets, are the most heavily used and handled items in the Local History Department.

    It’s a preservation issue, both for the quality of the pieces – some of which are crumbling – as well as to prevent more photographs from “disappearing” from the library.

    The goal is to have all the images accessible online through the library’s website.

    CLIFTON HILL, NIAGARA FALLS IN PHOTOS

    The Suitcase and Heels blog has posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls. It includes some fantastic pictures!

    The sign says that Clifton Hill is the street of fun at Niagara Falls to which I add a caveat… if you’re a kid. Most adults will probably find it to be a cheesy drain on their wallets. Everything may be overpriced but I still had fun photographing the over-the-topness of it all. I was here when I was 9 and you know what, almost nothing has changed. There are still the same haunted houses, wax museums, arcades and gift shops. One thing that I do love about Clifton Hill is how colourful every thing is. Here, see what I mean:
