abandon street

This sign was found next to the building shown in yesterday’s photo. This is an unusual sign in that it appears they plan to close the street. Normally our streets are very busy. I assume they plan to close this street because of the green space they are developing.

Following is a link to a article from the City of Charlotte about PETITIONER’S PROCEDURES FOR REQUESTING THE CLOSING OF DEDICATED STREETS AND ALLEYWAYS. In addition we are sharing a link for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: An unusual sign found in the South End district near uptown Charlotte.

hard stop

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.
