We had a Winter mix Friday night. On Saturday the sun came out and although the temperature was freezing the day was beautiful. In addition to the snow; there were blue sky and blue ice on the pond in Marshall Park. Ice is not a common event in Charlotte.
Today we share a few details from the President’s Cup mural which we have highlighted the last two days. My favorite is the photo with signatures. What I especial like are the joggers (you have to zoom in to see them) in the bottom of the mural next to the signatures.
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).
Yesterday evening we enjoyed a meal at the Flower Child which serves “Health Food for a Happy World. We enjoy the restaurant because of the food, the outdoor seating, and the positive messages they share.
Note that the photo was taken shortly after dusk with evening light reflecting off the Charlotte sky line.
This photo, of the changing skyline, was taken from Romare Bearden park in Uptown Charlotte. The building under construction is called 300 S. Tryon … here is very cool link from their Construction Time-lapse Camera.
Playing the chimes at Romare Bearden Park is not only enjoyed by the young but also the young at heart. I’ll admit I play them regularly (smile) … recently I heard a guide explain that the park, flowers, fountains, and rocks were laid out following the pattern of a collage which was one of Romare Bearden styles.
Is Uptown the upside down version of downtown? I ask because tomorrow is theme day in the City Daily Photo community and upside down is the theme. I chose to go with a more literal interpretation of the theme but it is always fun to see the different interpretations. Join us tomorrow for an upside down tour of the world.
