Let us take a short tour around the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY.  It is nearing spring and a few rare flowers are out like on the cherry trees here but it was still a cloudy, cold day out and the skies were threatening.  Eventually it did rain on me and at 36 degrees out it felt pretty chilly.

This is the front of the George Eastman House on East Avenue.  This avenue is full of huge stone and brick houses.

Polar “Rainbow” in Buffalo, NY

While at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY I noticed the sky was abnormal with a large white ring around the sun even on this fairly clear day.  It was frigid cold out as usual and there around the sun was a nice white, bright polar “rainbow” from the ice crystals in the air.  This was not caused by some lens effect like a flare and was visible easily with the eye.  It was hard to shoot directly into the morning sun.

In the area outside the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY they had a giant “sculpture” entirely made with aluminum canoes.  This modern sculpture gives me mixed feelings as I love canoes, but prefer wooden ones.

It was super cold out at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, but there were sculptures to see outside in the courtyard that was surrounded by the museum.

Here were shiny and dull large sculptures in metal that reflected the traditional Greek architecture around it:

One of the iconic images of Andy Warhol was his Campbell Soup cans and it is exhibited at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY.  This painting/ print is a huge version and apparently all are Beef Noodle soup.  For more on this see: Campbell Soup Cans
