Today’s photo shows a dog in a park. However, what I found as unique was that the dog appeared to be resting comfortably on his personal blanket. And then I thought this scene must have a story. So I waited to see which human came to join the dog .. and everyone just walked past. So maybe this really is a dog who brought a blanket to the park for a little relaxation.
Our contribution, to the City Daily Photo theme, is this sticky photo from our archives. The Ice Cream was good but the icee was very sticky. This photo was taken at Freedom Park in the Dilworth district near uptown Charlotte. The Ice Cream cones and the icee were purchased from an ice cream truck. It was a hot day so they were enjoyed.
Following is a link to City Daily Photo theme where photographers from around the world have shared there interpretation of today’s theme.
An additional photo has added to my mini-series about art objects in a pocket park called The Green in uptown Charlotte. These fish fountains have appeared in multiple TV series. Two I am aware of are Homeland and Delilah.
I like this photo because the couple, in the background, give a sense of scale.
Note that the Ratcliffe condos are in the background.
The Novant Health Welcome Back Festival was in full swing yesterday in uptown Charlotte. As the photo shows; the crowd brought their bag chairs, hammocks, umblellas, and tents. While I was there, the Orquesta Sabrosalsa band played and danced the salsa.
Best of all the Super Heroes, from Nuvant Health were there to administer Covid Vaccinations. The idea was to “make your vaccination part of your festival experience”. Yea Nuvant Health and thank you to those who were vaccinated.
This photo was taken near yesterday’s photo, the a pocket park called the Green. The park has several similar art objects. There are water fountains in the form of fish, sculptures of books, and sign post honoring authors. Photos will be shared in the near future.
Today’s photo shows brake marks from a hard stop in Uptown Charlotte. The photo also shows a couple strolling on a cold winter day and, looking closely, one can find friends enjoying a walk in the park. As such, I use today’s photo as a metaphor for life during the pandemic. A lot of what we love has stopped. However, love goes on.
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.
