fire pit at Fahrenheit rooftop lounge

The fire pit at Fahrenheit rooftop lounge in Uptown Charlotte
On a recent evening out I took this photo of a fire pit at Fahrenheit rooftop lounge. Interestingly the fire pit is enjoyable even in May however I suspect they will have to turn them off by June or July.

This photo was taken at 222 S Caldwell Street. Following is a link to the website for Chef Rocco Whale at the Fahrenheit. His website says he also has made the 2011 list of best food trucks in the nation. The website also says the Fahrenheit food truck is available for your party. Connie asked if they will park on the roof (smile).

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.


A lightrail station in the South End near Uptown Charlotte.
While on a walk, this last weekend, I took this photo at a lightrail station in the South End near Uptown Charlotte. Notice the pink building … it is one of Charlotte’s landmarks and is very interesting during the early morning sun. Those who own condo’s there have an outstanding view of Uptown Charlotte.

This photo was taken at the Bland Station. The pink building is called the Alington however their website is (smile).
