mural detail

Today we share a few details from the President’s Cup mural which we have highlighted the last two days. My favorite is the photo with signatures. What I especial like are the joggers (you have to zoom in to see them) in the bottom of the mural next to the signatures.

Following are links to the muralist @Traveling_Gypsy and @TreasyTreaz. Also, we are sharing a link to the original of today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: Part of a mural found in uptown Charlotte.

Theme day, picture of the year

Today is theme day in the City Daily Photo community and the theme is “Picture of the Year”. Our contribution is this photo of a pink reflection. Basically I like the lighting, the long shadows, the vivid blue sky, and the perspective of the photo … taken facing the sun. The pink reflection comes from a pink condominium which I have shared previously.

lets talk trash

It was the color, of the dumpster, that caught my eye. However, the photo also provided a post title. Zoom in and you will see the tag line for RJ Waste and Recover is “let’s talk trash”.

My personal contribution to trash talk is a story about my college years. One of my jobs was as a sanitation engineer. I started out “rolling trash cans” and worked my way up to truck driver.

A Google search found an article which explains the choice of pink. Their website says:

“We think Pink. This is a personal and important part of our corporate philosophy and business model. Think Pink and Mean Green’ philosophy, the company has a focus on cancer awareness, specifically breast cancer, and donates 10 percent of profits to organizations related to this cause.”

Mural Monday, magic

Today is Mural Monday and we are sharing a mural called “where the magic happens”. The mural is signed by @Traveling_Gypsy and @Duarte_Designs; and zooming in I found a QR code which promises a video of the artist, the ability to generate site-specific “face filters”, and explore a 3-D model of the piece.

Okay, I will admit that I had to Google what a face filter was (embarrassing).

The artist are Sydney Duarte and Ann Duarte.   The mural can be found at 400 South Church Street.

Following is a link to the Uptown Interactive webpage which places QR codes next to many of the murals in Uptown Charlotte. Also, we are sharing a link to the original of today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: A mural call “where the magic happens” found in uptown Charlotte.

Today’s photo shows the painting of a house in the Fourth Ward near uptown Charlotte. The color is great. The detail is especially nice. I also like how the house blends in with the old trees.

I chose this photo because of the pumpkins and the blue flower pots, I also like the prominent house number on the porch. Come to think of it. I like the porch as well (smile).

Flower Child

The Flower Child is one of our favorite restaurants however, because of the pandemic, it has been a year since we have eaten there. Fortunately they are still in business and now that we have received our vaccine shots we plan to enjoy a meal on their patio. Afterwards we may even relax in a yellow chair.

Note that yellow is a theme along the Rail Trail in Charlotte. Following is a link to internet images of yellow along the Rail Trail. In addition we are sharing a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: The Flower Child restaurant is one of our favorites however it has been a year since we ate there.

colorful parking garage

a colorful parking garage in Uptown Charlotte
This colorful parking garage caught my eye recently and so we are sharing a photo with you. Actually Charlotte has several interesting parking garages which make for good photo opportunities. However they don’t catch my attention given we mostly walk … my reason for noticing this parking garage is that it is next to the 7th Street Public Market where everything from fresh produce to wine and good food can be found.

This photo was taken near 224 E 7th Street and following is a link to the 7th Street Public Market.
