Today’s photo shows the BB&T parking garage. One can get dizzy finding your floor.
Interestingly the garage exit is like an expressway off ramp.
This photo was taken at 200 South College.
The Charlotte Plaza stands out against blue sky. I especially like the cloud reflection which blends nicely with the cloud behind the building.
The building is being remodeled at present although you cannot see that in this photo.
The Charlotte Plaza is found at 201 South College.
I took this photo because I liked the contrast of shadows and sunlight. The red brick building, in the background, sits behind Saint Peters Catholic Church and as you can see the building has a modern “church architecture“.
The building houses a pizza restaurant, a steak restaurant, and office space.
The photo was taken in The Green at 435 South Tryon.
Charlotte has been invaded. There are bicycles everywhere (smile).
There are several companies providing the bicycles. A few of the companies are: lime bike, spin, and ofo.
Apparently the concept is “dockless bike shares” and you leave them wherever you complete your ride.
We have not ridden them however it is impossible to stroll in Uptown and not notice them. There are several per block. And when we venture outside of Uptown we see them in the South End, in Mid-town, Dilworth, and I’m assume many other locations.
Today was overcast and rainy. A stay inside sort of day. So for our outing we strolled through the Overstreet Mall to Amalie’s.
From the photo, you can see that Amalie’s is fun and eclectic.
As regulars we recommend Amalie’s for the atmosphere, wine, food, and for their baguettes. Oh, and their pastries a very good too.
Amalie’s French Baker is at 380 South College.
Hints of spring include: cherry blossoms blooming in Uptown Charlotte and buds on other trees. This is a great time of year with surprises around each corner.
This photo was taken in a small park called The Green at 435 South Tryon.
The building, in the background, is the Duke Energy Center.
On a recent sunny Saturday morning this scene caught my eye. I thought it had a Beatles Abby Road feel
The scene shows some of the variety found in Uptown Charlotte.
We were enjoying breakfast at Dean and DeLuca at 201 South Tryon.
Today’s photo is a collage showing blue and red elevators in Three Wells Fargo Center. I like the color contrast. Note that I shared a similar photo called staircase art in elevator lobby
… sort a mini elevator series (smile).
This photo was taken at 401 South Tryon Street. Following is a link to the website for Three Wells Fargo Center.
This is the orchid we brought home from Campbell’s Greenhouse. We have a life philosophy that what we buy needs to fit in our small car (a BMW i3) and this orchid pushed the limits (smile).
This photo was take a 435 S. Tryon Street at our condo in the Ratcliffe complex. Following is Google search for Ratcliffe condo images.
Today’s photo looks the opposite direction from the two photos shared the previous days. The sun is prominent in the photo as is the Uptown art. The is a similar piece of art on the other side of the street. Jointly they welcome visitors to Uptown Charlotte.
This photos was taken at intersection of Interstate 277 and South Tryon. Following is a link to websites for the Uptown Museums.
