Keeping the rail trail clean

Today I happened upon this professional photo shoot and I took a quick snap with my iPhone. It appears the goal was to advocate for efforts to keep the Charlotte Rail Trail clean.

Notice the perfect timing with the train entering the station.

This photo was taken at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and the light rail. The station is called the 3rd Street / Convention Center station.

Failed photo

This is my failed attempt to use the timed photo feature on my phone. Sometimes it is good to laugh at yourself 😉

The photo was taken in the lobby of the Belk Theater at intermission. And yes I had enjoyed a glass of wine before the photo 😉

The scene is of the Belk Theater at 130 North Tryon. Following is a link to a previously shared photo taken from outside the Belk Theater which is part of Blumenthal Performing Art.

women’s march

Charlotte's women's march was a family affair  I was pleased that parents brought their children to the Women’s March today. This will be something the kids remember for the rest of their lives. I’ll remember it as well. The crowd was diverse in gender, race, culture religion, age, and cause … but today we were all women saying women’s rights are human rights.

Personally, I marched because president trump needs to told that the sexual assault, he bragged about, is reprehensible.

This photo was taken at 300 S Church St in Romare Bearden Park. Following is a website for the Women’s March on Charlotte.

Embassy Suites

the Embassy Suites The Embassy Suites, by Hilton, is new construction in Uptown Charlotte. Interestingly it is across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn. So hopefully they will attract different clientele or they may be robbing Peter to pay Paul (smile).

This photo was taken at 401 East Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Following is a link to the Uptown Charlotte Embassy Suites hotel.
