a pink reflection

While walking along the rail trail, the jogger approaching us was bathed in a pink reflection. It was not a surprise to us given there is a mid-rise condo with pink glass on the rail trail. The evening sun was reflecting off the pink building and on to this jogger.

From a photographic standpoint I like the contrast between the shadows and the reflection.

Following is a link to the a Wikipedia article about the pink condo complex in Charlotte. Also, we are sharing a link to the original of today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: A pink reflection highlights a jogger in the South End district near uptown Charlotte.

morning sunrise

This morning I woke to this beautiful morning sunrise. With out any thought, I stepped out on to the patio to take this photo. Embarrassingly I realized, after the fact, that I was still in my underwear when I stepped out on to the patio. So there is maybe a photo out there where someone is complaining about their crazy neighbor.

The 12 story building, in the center of the photo, is my new office building. Hopefully the crazy neighbor photo does not come from the my new office (smile).

Atrium Health dome

Bravo to Atrium Health, in addition to their partnership with the Carolina Panther’s, they partnered with Carolina Speedway this weekend for a Mass vaccination event. There were over 16,000 vaccinations administered in this drive through event. It was also very cool that the public took a lap on the speedway.

Today’s photo shows the Atrium Health dome at the Carolina Panther’s practice field. I chose the photo to use as a metaphor for light at the end of the tunnel.

tree

tree in evening sun
On the weekends, we enjoy walking on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway and we especially enjoy the trees. This tree is found at the entrance to Freedom Park. As you can see it was back lit by the evening sun.

Following are links to post of trees we have shared in the past.

This photo was taken at 1900 East Blvd. Following is a link to the Freedom Park website.

Charlotte skyline

The Charlotte skyline lit in bright sunlight.
Living in uptown presents a photographic challenge … Often the Charlotte skyline is lit in bright sunlight while the location I’m taking the photo from is in shadow from a different building. For example this photo was taken from Romare Bearden Park which is surrounded by several tall apartment buildings. The lighting contrast is an enjoyable challenge.

Bearden park is an active park with many events. As a result the park it’s own twitter account, website, and wikipedia article.
