This is a much more common scene than the street scene shown yesterday. Today’s photo shows, parking on the side streets with a mix of industrial and new construction. Also the flowering trees are common. As are the one way streets :)

Following is a link to the South End Charlotte Org where you can find A Discovery Around Every Corner. In addition we are sharing a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: parking on the side streets is common in the South End dristrict near uptown Charlotte.

This is what all parking garages should look like. They should be under a park with trees, flowers, art, and people with smiling faces. Actually, we are fortunate to have this park and parking garage in front of our condo complex in uptown Charlotte. The park and the parking garage are called The Green for good reason.

Following is a Wikipedia article about The Green. In addition we are sharing a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: Flowers at the Green parking garage in uptown Charlotte.

Today’s photo shows dynamic art on the side of a parking garage in Uptown Charlotte. The art is composed of sun catching polished metal pieces which the wind moves causing patterns of light.

Following is a website showing parking garages in Uptown. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Parking garage art found in Uptown Charlotte.

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.

We were shopping at Best Buy when this photo was taken. We also frequently park at the Metropolitan because it gives us easy access to the Little Sugar Creek Greenway. In addition Trader Joe’s, great restaurants, and outdoor music can be found at the Metropolitan.

colorful parking garage

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.
