It was the color, of the dumpster, that caught my eye. However, the photo also provided a post title. Zoom in and you will see the tag line for RJ Waste and Recover is “let’s talk trash”.
My personal contribution to trash talk is a story about my college years. One of my jobs was as a sanitation engineer. I started out “rolling trash cans” and worked my way up to truck driver.
A Google search found an article which explains the choice of pink. Their website says:
“We think Pink. This is a personal and important part of our corporate philosophy and business model. Think Pink and Mean Green’ philosophy, the company has a focus on cancer awareness, specifically breast cancer, and donates 10 percent of profits to organizations related to this cause.”
Today is Mural Monday and we are sharing a mural called “where the magic happens”. The mural is signed by @Traveling_Gypsy and @Duarte_Designs; and zooming in I found a QR code which promises a video of the artist, the ability to generate site-specific “face filters”, and explore a 3-D model of the piece.
Okay, I will admit that I had to Google what a face filter was (embarrassing).
The artist are Sydney Duarte and Ann Duarte. The mural can be found at 400 South Church Street.
Recently, we opened and assembled an early Christmas present such that we can keep active this winter. I ordered this spin bike on the day that the Omicron variant made the news. When the pandemic began we put our YMCA gym membership on hold thinking that soon we would be back. Then our expectations shifted and we planned our return to the gym in three months, then six months, then a year, and now who knows. So we chose to bring a little of the gym into our home.
One of the challenges is space. Where to put a spin bike in a 1,200 square foot condo. We chose the living room such that we can participate in Apple Fitness+ on our TV.
Today is Mural Monday and we are sharing this inspirational mural found in uptown Charlotte. The mural artist is Nick Napoletano a local Charlotte artist who has created numerous murals around Charlotte. In addition Nick’s website says he is working on “design collaboration merging our world with Virtual and Augmented Reality”. Check Nick’s art out at Nick Napoletano Art website and his Two Form instagram account.
We are also sharing a gallery, of the detail, in this mural.
This a new scene in uptown Charlotte. The LYNX light rail now runs on trolly tracks and called Street Cars. It was an interesting choice to use the same trains on high speed light rail tracks and on trolly tracks. I assume they are actually different trains because there are no power lines above the trolly tracks while the high speed light rail is powered by electricity.
I took this photo because the QR code intrigued me. Is it possible to snap a photo while driving past; them zoom in and use the QR code to link to the site advertised? Turns out zooming in does not work however I was able to point my iPhone camera at a copy of the photo and use the QR code as a link.
I also wanted to share the excitement around the big reveal of the inaugural 2022 Charlotte FC kit.
Today is theme day in the City Daily Photo community. The theme is “the future” and our contribution is this photo of a “back to the future” mural found on the back wall of a the Discovery Place Science Center. The photo was taken facing the sun and then Photoshop enhanced. Maybe this is the future.
Following is a link to the Discovery Place Science Center which I truly believe is the future. IMHO, every time a child visits the science center humanities future is enhanced because they learn to enjoy and appreciate science.
Note that the sign on the bottom right of the photo says “you are being watched” . Maybe this is the future.
