Today’s photo was taken on our road trip to the mountains. This is the patio at the Town Tavern. There is good food, music, drinks, and most importantly .. cool mountain air.
Note that, although Connie and I are vaccinated, we are not ready to eat inside a restaurant. However, we do enjoy restaurants with outdoor seating. Unfortunately, due to the heat, our only recent restaurant experiences have been early morning brunch. It was nice to enjoy an evening meal.
Our contribution, to the City Daily Photo theme, is this sticky photo from our archives. The Ice Cream was good but the icee was very sticky. This photo was taken at Freedom Park in the Dilworth district near uptown Charlotte. The Ice Cream cones and the icee were purchased from an ice cream truck. It was a hot day so they were enjoyed.
Following is a link to City Daily Photo theme where photographers from around the world have shared there interpretation of today’s theme.
Today’s photo shows an old and a new structure in the same photo. The structure, in the foreground, is what appears to the old parsonage at a church. The structure, in the background, is an apartment building called the Skyhouse.
Following are a few additional views of the McColl Center where the above photo was taken.
Today’s photo shows our brunch this weekend. We enjoyed breakfast tacos, sausage, gravy, biscuits, and fruit. We also enjoyed the outdoor tables which were safely spaced. The tables are in shade and very enjoyable.
An additional photo has added to my mini-series about art objects in a pocket park called The Green in uptown Charlotte. These fish fountains have appeared in multiple TV series. Two I am aware of are Homeland and Delilah.
I like this photo because the couple, in the background, give a sense of scale.
Note that the Ratcliffe condos are in the background.
The Novant Health Welcome Back Festival was in full swing yesterday in uptown Charlotte. As the photo shows; the crowd brought their bag chairs, hammocks, umblellas, and tents. While I was there, the Orquesta Sabrosalsa band played and danced the salsa.
Best of all the Super Heroes, from Nuvant Health were there to administer Covid Vaccinations. The idea was to “make your vaccination part of your festival experience”. Yea Nuvant Health and thank you to those who were vaccinated.
This photo was taken near yesterday’s photo, the a pocket park called the Green. The park has several similar art objects. There are water fountains in the form of fish, sculptures of books, and sign post honoring authors. Photos will be shared in the near future.
News articles indicate the banks plan to bring employees back to uptown Charlotte starting in September. Hopefully vaccination rates will increase, we defeat the Delta variant, and uptown comes back to life. It is within our reach; all we have to do, is get vaccinated.
Razor wire, beautiful homes, and a message of Faith not Fear. This photo was taken in the South End district near uptown Charlotte. The razor wire is around an industrial business. What caught my attention was the contrast shown in this scene.
In the South End district there is a discovery around every corner, which includes this beautiful building. The Catholic Charities is housed in this building as well as the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte. I like the windows and the flowers.
What caught my attention was the question mark at the top of the building. Then I noticed that the name of the business is The Unknown Brewery. So the question mark makes sense. Also, note that the outdoor tables and the lights make this an appealing spot to enjoy a beer on a hot summer evening.
