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”.
Today’s photo highlights another of the You Can signs found around Charlotte. The Little Sugar Creak Greenway is also featured in the photo. My wife and I look forward to cooler weather such that we can resume our long walks one the Greenway.
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.
Today’s photo shows a dog in a park. However, what I found as unique was that the dog appeared to be resting comfortably on his personal blanket. And then I thought this scene must have a story. So I waited to see which human came to join the dog .. and everyone just walked past. So maybe this really is a dog who brought a blanket to the park for a little relaxation.
Today’s photo was taken on our road trip to the mountains. This is the patio at the Town Tavern. There is good food, music, drinks, and most importantly .. cool mountain air.
Note that, although Connie and I are vaccinated, we are not ready to eat inside a restaurant. However, we do enjoy restaurants with outdoor seating. Unfortunately, due to the heat, our only recent restaurant experiences have been early morning brunch. It was nice to enjoy an evening meal.
Our contribution, to the City Daily Photo theme, is this sticky photo from our archives. The Ice Cream was good but the icee was very sticky. This photo was taken at Freedom Park in the Dilworth district near uptown Charlotte. The Ice Cream cones and the icee were purchased from an ice cream truck. It was a hot day so they were enjoyed.
Following is a link to City Daily Photo theme where photographers from around the world have shared there interpretation of today’s theme.
Today’s photo shows an old and a new structure in the same photo. The structure, in the foreground, is what appears to the old parsonage at a church. The structure, in the background, is an apartment building called the Skyhouse.
Following are a few additional views of the McColl Center where the above photo was taken.
Today’s photo shows our brunch this weekend. We enjoyed breakfast tacos, sausage, gravy, biscuits, and fruit. We also enjoyed the outdoor tables which were safely spaced. The tables are in shade and very enjoyable.
An additional photo has added to my mini-series about art objects in a pocket park called The Green in uptown Charlotte. These fish fountains have appeared in multiple TV series. Two I am aware of are Homeland and Delilah.
I like this photo because the couple, in the background, give a sense of scale.
Note that the Ratcliffe condos are in the background.
The Novant Health Welcome Back Festival was in full swing yesterday in uptown Charlotte. As the photo shows; the crowd brought their bag chairs, hammocks, umblellas, and tents. While I was there, the Orquesta Sabrosalsa band played and danced the salsa.
Best of all the Super Heroes, from Nuvant Health were there to administer Covid Vaccinations. The idea was to “make your vaccination part of your festival experience”. Yea Nuvant Health and thank you to those who were vaccinated.
This photo was taken near yesterday’s photo, the a pocket park called the Green. The park has several similar art objects. There are water fountains in the form of fish, sculptures of books, and sign post honoring authors. Photos will be shared in the near future.
