Georgia O’Keeffe

Today I saw the special Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery! It’s not what I expected (I expected flower and bone artwork), but it was really interesting nonetheless. There were many black and white photos of Georgia O’Keeffe taken by her husband Alfred Stieglitz and another photographer Todd Webb, along with some of her earlier works. Here’s a couple of the photographs I saw today. Here’s Georgia O’Keeffe at the University of Virginia:

I figured it would be easy to find images on the web of all of her works, how mistaken I was, so I’ll have to get the rest of the images for you later. For now, here’s the list of her work that I saw. If I found an image, it is below the title. These are all much more gorgeous in person.

Migrating Frogs & Salamanders, Deer

I feel so bad. Animal lover told me while he was driving home from work early this morning there were tons of migrating frogs crossing the road – the road I have to take to my parents’ home today. Argh, people who design and build roads through wetlands or any lands without thinking about building fences and/or tunnels for the wildlife drive me crazy. I don’t look forward to seeing dead frog bodies all over the road. I hope the frog migration finished before rush hour traffic.

He also told me that down near Honeoye Lake the salamanders were getting killed while migrating across a road near the lake – the professors at FLCC counted 100 salamanders in a 20’x20′ area. Way too many – the DoT is actually going to change the road to build tunnels – yay!

I forgot to mention yesterday, on my way to the Genesee Country Village & Museum I had to drive through the country with trees and shrubs that are really close to the road – and yup – deer were popping out and grazing *all* along the way. I thought I was never going to get there with having to drive slow and stop and etc. but I figure it’s better than hurting a deer / my vehicle and/or myself and continuing my “Deerslayer” nickname.
