On Saint Patrick’s day there were lines of people in green. This photo shows a line of hungry people at the Halal Food Cart.
There were also lines, at the entrance of every bar. Thirsty people in green 😉
This photo was taken at the intersection of Trade and Tryon.
This lone soldier marched in Charlotte’s Saint Patrick’s day parade. There were floats, bands, bagpipes, and dancing children. But what moved me the most was this tribute to Ireland’s war service. Based on the uniform it would appear this was specific to WWI
Following is an interesting article about Ireland and World War I
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.
A while back we took our grandson to the Children’s library in Uptown Charlotte. This art by Allison … and a few others … caught my eye.
The Children’s library is at ImaginOn at 300 East 7th Street and offers a fun filled afternoon for families.
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 😉

I took this photo while practicing with timed photography on my iPhone. After taking it I realized there is a sea of footprints in the carpet 😉
This photo was taken in the Belk Theater at 130 North Tryon. We were attended a tribute to John Denver’s music performed by the Charlotte Symphony.
Two of my favorite pieces of art are found at the Bank of America Corporate Center in Uptown Charlotte.
They depict what is going on in my life … work and chaos (smile)
There are actually three frescoes created by Ben Long.

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.
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.
Two hotels and a condo complex found in Uptown Charlotte. The condo complex is called the Madison. The condo has many distinct design features. The hotels are the Hilton Garden Inn and the Hampton Inn.
