This sign was found in uptown Charlotte. The sign begs an explanation and unfortunately I do not have an explanation. So this is just a guess: Today was the Charlotte Marathon, with thousands of runners, might it be possible the runners were asked to run in the streets and the sidewalks are for the cheering crowds.
In the sprite of the season we are sharing a photo of a Halloween caution sign. If you look closely there is a caution sign about the witch.
Note that used photoshop to replace the sky with something a little more ominous than the beautiful blue sky on the day when this photo was taken.
On a personal note: A few years back we were enjoying a drink at a local bar and during a conversation with a new acquaintance he mentioned that he lived in the 4th ward in the home painted blue. But he did not mention a witch (smile).
Following is a link to Halloween Activities in Charlotte. Also, we are sharing a link to the today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: Also, we are sharing a link to the today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: A Halloween caution sign found in the 4th ward near uptown Charlotte.
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.
Today’s photo shows the pumpkin patch in the outfield of the Truist baseball stadium in uptown Charlotte. This event was held at the Taste of Charlotte festival.

The Uptown Farmers Market has been around for a while however when they added this mural I knew they should be highlighted on Charlotte Daily Photo. Love the colors and the messages in the mural.
Today I am sharing a vaccinated selfie which was taken at the first event we have attended in 15 months. We were so excited we arrived early. The event was a Blues concert. The venue was outdoors, socially distanced, mask were worn by most, the number in attendance was limited … it was great.
We are also sharing a short video of the music and the crowd.
Get your shot and enjoy the new normal.
Last weekend our grandson visited and we had an adventure at the Discovery Place. We enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit, our grandson played with the dinosaurs in augmented reality, dug for bones, launched a meteorite, and was inspired by an iMax movie call dream big.
Oh, and they had a tyrannosaurus, in a box, which was making lots of noise ;)
The AIDS Walk was a colorful event. I was especially pleased with volunteers handing our water and snacks to the walkers.
The AIDS Walk Charlotte website states that $147,000+ has been raised.
This lone soldier marched in Charlotte’s Saint Patrick’s day parade. There were floats, bands, bagpipes, and dancing children. But what moved me the most was this tribute to Ireland’s war service. Based on the uniform it would appear this was specific to WWI
Following is an interesting article about Ireland and World War I
I took this photo while practicing with timed photography on my iPhone. After taking it I realized there is a sea of footprints in the carpet ;)
This photo was taken in the Belk Theater at 130 North Tryon. We were attended a tribute to John Denver’s music performed by the Charlotte Symphony.
I was pleased that parents brought their children to the Women’s March today. This will be something the kids remember for the rest of their lives. I’ll remember it as well. The crowd was diverse in gender, race, culture religion, age, and cause … but today we were all women saying women’s rights are human rights.
Personally, I marched because president trump needs to told that the sexual assault, he bragged about, is reprehensible.
Not quit as fast as a NASCAR race but Ice Skating is still a thrill. Each year an ice rink is setup in front of the NASCAR Hall of Fame and a Northern experience comes to the South. It is always busy and great fun to watch.
The Charlotte Marathon was ran yesterday (November 12th) and as the photo shows it was cold. These two runners stayed warm with tin foil wrap. Actually this is a thing now and I assume you can buy these sheets in any running shop. I understand they are light weight and do a good job of blocking the wind.
This photo was taken at the intersection of South Tryon and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. For those who want to run next year; following is the Facebook page for the Charlotte Marathon.
