Today’s photo was taken through a window at the Barcelona wine bar in the South End district. This is actually a photo of a photo hanging in the entrance to the Barcelona restaurant. And in the original photo you will find my reflection.
Note that the Barcelona wine bar has patio dinning with heaters which is good during the pandemic.
Yesterday, while on a walk with my wife, we admired the Fall colors found in the uptown Charlotte parks. This specific tree stood out and we went to some efforts to capture a photo. Specifically we used the panorama feature on my iPhone.
You can see that we are also sharing a slide show with impression of the colors. Which one is your favorite.
This is one of two identical artworks welcoming you to uptown Charlotte. But I am not sure if they are welcoming auto traffic or visiting UFO’s.
A little Goggle research finds that they are called the “Tyron bridge beacons” and were designed by Friedrich St. Florian Architects. An article indicates that they were creating a sense of theatrical splendor that radiates from the assembly of high rise buildings seen from the bridge,
These signs have been shared previously however today they are shared from a new perspective. The perspective shows the new Duke Plaza office tower which is nearing the end of construction .. a sign of progress.
A personal note; the signs are in the park at the front door were my wife and I live. One of the signs states that Charlotte is the center of the known world .. maybe a stretch but I like the sign.
Today is our contribution the the Monday Mural theme. I especially like this mural given that it honors the performing arts. Nick Napoletano created this mural and many more through out Charlotte. Nick signs his murals as @NAPOLETNOART
Today’s photo is a quick iPhone snap taken today when I was exercising. The photo does not do justice for this art project in uptown Charlotte. The concept interest me so I am sure I will be back to take more photos.
The art project is by Aguinaldo Santos, a local Charlotte artist. The collage of eyes is part of a larger project called 1839 Art exhibition. The collage of eyes is on one end of an exhibit in the “form of a model … of the first commercial photographic camera in the world, made in France in 1839”.
Interestingly, part of the exhibit includes the statement that the “Human Eye is equivalent to a 576 Megapixel camera”.
Today’s photo shows a garden path found in the fourth ward near uptown Charlotte. I especially like the blue flower pots. In addition to this scene there are several blue flower pots on the the stairwell to the condo.
Following is a link to the Fourth Ward Neighborhood website. Also, following is a link to the today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: Also, following is a link to the today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: A garden path found in the fourth ward new uptown Charlotte.
Today is theme day in the City Daily Photo community, the theme is winners, and our contribution is this photo showing an “on the right path” message. The message was found on the steps of the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte. The message is from Marley Noel. There is even a QR code which leads your to an arts initiative called Of Earth and Sky CLT.
Their website states that they are providing “tokens of inspiration and poetic reminders of hope”.
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.
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.
