house without wires

This is a follow-up photo to yesterday’s photo. The photo from yesterday and today’s photo show the same house in the 1st ward of uptown Charlotte. The difference are the power lines. The wires were removed, from today’s photo, by using a DJI Pocket camera which has a setting to automatically take six photos and stitch them together in a panoramic format. The DJI Pocket camera also has a lens mounted on a gimbal which acts as a stabilizer.

As the name implies, the camera fits in your pocket :)

Note that in today’s photo, there was some camera distortion given I was standing so close to the house. Some of the distortion was removed using PhotoShop.

It was a fun project.

Following is a link to the DJI Pocket 2 camera. We are also sharing a link to the original of today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: A house in the 1st ward of uptown Charlotte.

Ratcliffe Flowers

The Historic Ratcliffe Flowers sign in Uptown Charlotte
The Historic Ratcliffe Flowers sign stands in the Green with the Ratcliffe condos in the background. There is an interesting story, in the Charlotte Business Journal, about the Ratcliffe’s Flowers building, the construction of the condos, and the preservation and incorporation of the original architecture.

This photo was taken at 435 South Tryon Street. Following is a link to the Historic Landmark Commission website with detail about the sign.
