flowers on the Green

During these difficult times it is good to notice what is beautiful. This photo was taken at The Green, which is actually an underground parking garage. At street level The Green is a small park, complete with signpost honoring authors, two story sculptures of stacked books, fish sculptures spotting water for the kids to play in, and lots of flowers.

Following is a link to images from The Green. The address is 400 South Tryon. Also, following is a link to this photo on Flickr.

construction continues

As part of the Mecklenburg county “stay at home” order, only essential business activity are allowed. It appears construction is not only allowed it is expanding at a rapid pace. The City of Charlotte has start several street repair projects which as started after the “stay at home” order. Thank you to all the construction workers.

The top left photo shows activity at the Duke Energy tower at 525 S. Tryon St. The remaining photos show conduit being laid along College Street.

open with love

Many Charlotte restaurants are open for pickup and delivery. As the sign says, We’re open with love.

This photo was taken on an evening walk in Uptown. During the walk, we maintained six feet of physical distance with other walkers. However, physical distance is becoming harder and we regularly have to look for alternate routes.

BOA Tower

Today’s photo shows the Bank of America Tower which was recently constructed. Of specific interest is the video wall in the lobby. Their website says that one of the amenities is a thirty-four by sixty-six foot video wall that can be viewed from the lawn in the entry plaza.

not for photos

The Charlotte lite rail system has a public service message which caught my eye. The message is “Tracks are not for photos!”. Note that I am not encouraging the behavior by also sharing the sign which encourages “Live on the Edge”.

In addition to sharing the public service message I am sharing a second photo which shows the popular Rail Trail which is next to the lite rail tracks. My wife and I, along which many others, enjoy walking the Rail Trail.
