Shadows and sunlight

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.

bicycles and more bicycles

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.

Amelie’s French Bakery

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.

blue and red elevators

blue and red elevators 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.
