Over The Moon About Warhol, This Flower Show & Protecting Wildlife
March 18, 2016
Here is another installment in my “Over the Moon About” blog series, which highlights three different things that have caught my eye this month. And if the Morgan Library docent or security guard who encountered me trying to document the Warhol exhibit below, is reading this, again, I’m sorry.
World Wildlife Day
I made this 15 second video in support of World Wildlife Day this month. I used my favorite book about elephants as a backdrop, “Earth To Sky” by National Geographic photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols. Plus I have a few of my MakerBot 3D elephants thrown in too.
It’s never too late to support this important cause and put an end to needless poaching.
- Empowers Africa empowers people, fosters education, protects wildlife and conserves land. I love the fact they are supporting the Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit (APU) in the Balule Nature Reserve in South Africa. Read about Empowers Africa here.
- Wildlife Conservation Society is credited with doing effective and groundbreaking work in Africa.
- “When the buying stops, the killing can too”. Wild Aid‘s mission it to end the illegal wildlife trade in our lifetimes.
- Also, watch the documentary film Warlords of Ivory and follow how journalist Bryan Christy exposes the ivory trade in Africa.
Andy Warhol By The Book
I had an early look at a remarkable visual exploration of Andy Warhol’s lifelong love affair with book design and publishing. Lucky for those New York area residents and those visiting the Big Apple, this exhibit runs through May 15 at The Morgan Library & Museum just a short walk from Grand Central Terminal. Some of my favorite exhibit photos follow. I grabbed these shots before I was told to put my camera away. Go see this for yourself and take a look at their website for all things Warhol.
Macy’s Flower Show
Do you have a Macys Department store near you? Stores are located in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Minneapolis and San Francisco. Between March 20-April 3 the Macy’s Flowers Show takes over the store and offers activities … for free. You can shop and smell the roses at the same time. Activities and events for Macy’s Flower Show events listed here.
All photographs are taken by me, unless I have noted otherwise in the caption. I use my iPhone 6plus and Canon 5D III.
