Today is theme day in the City Daily Photo community, the theme is winners, and our contribution is this photo showing an “on the right path” message. The message was found on the steps of the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte. The message is from Marley Noel. There is even a QR code which leads your to an arts initiative called Of Earth and Sky CLT.

Their website states that they are providing “tokens of inspiration and poetic reminders of hope”.

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz

Highlighting the Spring is Sprung performance at the Knight Theater in uptown Charlotte. The dance performance was energetic and lively.

Following are some interesting links on the subject:

Following are the lyrics for the “Spring is Sprung” song.

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz.
I wonder where the birdies is. 
They say the birdies on the wing, but that's absurd.
I always thought the wing was on the bird. 

Actually this was my original April Fools day joke for the April Theme Day. However, it caused some confusion given the original April theme was Spring and then changed to April Fools.

Theme day – mirrors

Today is Theme day in the City Daily Photo community and the theme is mirrors. Our theme contribution is this art display found in Charlotte. The name of the display is Covid Confessional and you quickly note that it is focused on social distancing. The art display is set of iridescent curved walls, with a six foot radius, that are activated by light. The walls includes color and reflection.

selfie in Covid confessional

We also took a selfie which shows the reflective (i.e. mirror) nature of the display. However, we have no Covid transgressions to confess. Actually, we have been very careful and look forward to the pandemic ending.

Please visit other bloggers who are participating in the March theme day – mirrors.

In addition we are sharing a link to Studio Dickey which presented the Covid Confessional. Also, we are sharing a link to a Charlotte Observer article about I Heart Rail Trail: Lights 2021 which includes a video of the light displays including the Covid Confessional.

Following is a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: An art exhibit, called Covid Confessional, found in the South End near Uptown Charlotte.

theme day, smile

Today is theme day, in the City Daily Photo community. The theme is smiles and our contribution is this family enjoying an outdoor meal in one of the plaza’s in Uptown. During the pandemic smiles have been hard to find. They were there but behind mask. It’s a little thing but I really miss smiles and delight when they appear.

Theme Day (photo of the year)

It is the first of the month and the City Daily Photo community theme is “photo of the year”. I did not post many photos at Charlotte Daily Photo this year so I searched my iPhone memories and chose this photo of my grandson celebrating his win at monopoly. With this photo I wish you all a new year full of things to celebrate.

Please visit other bloggers who are participating in the January theme day.

Theme Day is bicycles found in your city.  Our city is Charlotte

theme day is upside down

Theme day, upside down chairs
Theme day is upside down this month .. literally and figuratively. Our literal contribution is this photo of chairs turned upside down so the floor can be moped. Check out yesterday’s post to see my figurative interpretation. Actually, I found this theme difficult because there are not many things upside down in my life (smile).

This photo was taken at one of the restaurants on East Boulevard in historic Dilworth near uptown Charlotte.

theme day – stylish

theme day - stylish is in the eye of the beholder.  art found at the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte
Style is in the eye of the beholder. To me this is a great alternative to wearing a tie (smile). Today is theme day – stylish … in the City Daily Photo community. This theme presented some real challenges for me. Last weekend we were at a great lounge and many young ladies were dressed quite stylishly … not ready to be told no I let the opportunity pass … then I found that the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte had a special Holston and Warhol exhibit from March 7th through June 14th … a perfect opportunity because there was some serious stylish going on … however no photos were allowed … so we also went to see the second special exhibit called body embellishment … not really my cup of tea until I found that some of the pieces of art had Safe for Social signs … once confirming the signs meaning with the guard I snapped this photo with my iPhone and will now dutifully include a #TheMintMuseum hash tag. Also, I should share that the art was created by Swiss artist David Bielander

Visit the City Daily Photo theme day and enjoy interpretations of stylish from around the world.

theme day, what would you miss

Theme day, what would you miss if you had to leave Charlotte
Today is Theme day, what would you miss had to leave forever. We choose to share a photo of the Charlotte signpost which stand in The Green, a park in Uptown Charlotte. Note that at the bottom the it says Charlotte North Carolina, Center of the Known World (smile). Actually this does a good job of depicting what I would miss … being at the center of it all. We live in Condo’s which overlook the park in which this signpost stands. Arts, sports, great dinning, green spaces, and commerce radiate out from this central point.

For more interpretation of the theme please visit the City Daily Photo what would you miss theme page.
