Today’s photo shows the Nascar Hall of Fame in uptown Charlotte. The sign in the middle says “This is our sport. This is our house”. With an emphases on the word “our”. And there is a lot of reality, in the word “our” given Charlotte embraces the sport.

Following is a link the website for the Nascar Hall of Fame. I like that the website photos show visitors wearing mask. We are also sharing a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: The Nascar Hall of Fame in uptown Charlotte.

Truist Park

Today’s photo shows our empty baseball stadium, called Truist Park, in uptown Charlotte. But it will not be empty long. The first home game is scheduled for April 6th. Truist Park was previously know as BB&T Park. However, the name changed along with the bank’s name.

Personally, I think it may be a little early to open sporting events. However, I was pleased to find that the Charlotte Knights’ website explains their Covid health and safety protocols include limited capacity, social distancing, and mask.

Truist Park is home to the Charlotte Knights, a Minor League Baseball (MiLB) team. Following is a link to the Charlotte Knights’ website. In addition we are sharing a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: Truist Park in uptown Charlotte.

Note that this photo has been touched up using Photoshop. Following is a link showing the original photo which included a wire running directly through the middle of the photo. Photoshop’s healing brush removed the wire from the sky but if you look closely you can see the wire still crosses in front of the mid rise building just to the left of center.

Also, of interest. If you zoom in there is a window washing crew busy at work on about the 19 floor of the white building just right of center in the photo.

Bank of America

This photo was taken of the Atrium Health signs which say #ThisIsMyShot which is a hash tag photo opportunity supporting mass vaccine events held at the Bank of America stadium where the Panthers play. Bravo to Atrium Health and the Panthers.

Following is a link to the Atrium Health website article about COIVID-19. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: The entrance, to the Bank of America stadium, there are signs which say #ThisIsMyShot.

Rainbow hallway

Today we share a colorful hallway which connects two office towers in Uptown Charlotte.

During the work week, this hallway is frequently used by business people. One of which is me ;)

The hallway is also part of my daily walk to work. And, part of my walk to the YMCA which is where I was headed today.

Following is a link to the Uptown YMCA. The address is 301 South College Street.

ballpark

The BB&T BallPark in Uptown Charlotte
The BB&T Ballpark in a nice addition to Uptown Charlotte … We are not big baseball fans however it will be enjoyable to be part of the crowd and we wish them success.

This photo was taken of the BB&T ballpark where the Charlotte Knights play. The map location is: 324 South Mint Street. When you open the map notice how close the baseball park is the football stadium. A basketball arena is also just a few blocks away.
