This last weekend I took this photo of a wedding party outside of Saint Peters in uptown Charlotte. I especially liked the red bridesmaid dresses and the white Rolls Royces. They add a nice touch of color.
Wedding, births, and life events continue even during a pandemic. I observed that some wore mask until the excited the church ands I assume those in a attendance were vaccinated.
As the this photos shows, there are all sorts of bicycles today. Big ones and little ones. This is a the smallest bicycle I have seen so far. Also, interestingly this bicycle is electric. I assume the primary benefit is the bicycle is that it can be stored in small places like the trunk of a car or in the an apartment.
Today’s photo shows a Panthers fan along with his dog. Today was game day for the Panthers and there were large crowds in uptown. I tried to avoid the crowds but was able to snap this photo. There was tailgating, jerseys from both teams, and lots of people enjoying the day.
The bird house is what caught my eye. The human house is eye catching as well. The double porches is especially nice. Also, they have swings and artwork on the porch … the paint is also eye catching. However, I especially loved the bird house.

While on a walk, I noticed this sign for the Honorary Consulate of Italy. What interested me is that the consulate is called honorary. Google searches find that there are honorary consulates, for many nations, across the US. A Google search for “why are Consulates called Honorary” finds the following explanation:
Honorary consuls are called “honorary“ because they perform their work on an honorary basis and are not paid a fee for their services.
Things are looking up in Charlotte. As shown in this photo, the Duke Energy Plaza is close to complete. A recent news article states that Duke Energy plans to move their corporate headquarters into the new building.
