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.
Another beautiful day with more blooms. Once again a photo opportunity presented itself in our favorite park, The Green.
This photo was taken at 435 South Tryon. The building, in the background is the Duke Energy Center.
This photo, of the changing skyline, was taken from Romare Bearden park in Uptown Charlotte. The building under construction is called 300 S. Tryon … here is very cool link from their Construction Time-lapse Camera
Playing the chimes at Romare Bearden Park is not only enjoyed by the young but also the young at heart. I’ll admit I play them regularly (smile) … recently I heard a guide explain that the park, flowers, fountains, and rocks were laid out following the pattern of a collage which was one of Romare Bearden styles.
This photo was taken at 300 South Church Street. Following is a Wikipedia article about Romare Bearden who the park was name after.
Is Uptown the upside down version of downtown? I ask because tomorrow is theme day in the City Daily Photo community and upside down is the theme. I chose to go with a more literal interpretation of the theme but it is always fun to see the different interpretations. Join us tomorrow for an upside down tour of the world.
This photo was taken on the South Tryon Street overpass crossing Interstate 277. The City Daily Photo theme day can be found at July 2015 gallery – upside down.
Recently we shared a photo of the First Baptist Church as seen looking down from above. Today we are sharing the view from the First Baptist Church. A twist in perspectives.
Following is the previous photo of the First Baptist Church. The address is: 301 S Davidson Street and following is a link to their website.
On a recent evening out I took this photo of a fire pit at Fahrenheit rooftop lounge. Interestingly the fire pit is enjoyable even in May however I suspect they will have to turn them off by June or July.
This photo was taken at 222 S Caldwell Street. Following is a link to the website for Chef Rocco Whale at the Fahrenheit. His website says he also has made the 2011 list of best food trucks in the nation. The website also says the Fahrenheit food truck is available for your party. Connie asked if they will park on the roof (smile).
This photo of the SKYE condo swimming pool was taken on a recent visit to the Fahrenheit Restaurant which is on the top of the Skye Condominiums in Uptown Charlotte. Be sure and time your visit to enjoy the sunset.
This photo was taken at South Caldwell and East 3rd Streets. Also, following is a link the the SKYE Condominiums
Living in uptown presents a photographic challenge … Often the Charlotte skyline is lit in bright sunlight while the location I’m taking the photo from is in shadow from a different building. For example this photo was taken from Romare Bearden Park which is surrounded by several tall apartment buildings. The lighting contrast is an enjoyable challenge.
Bearden park is an active park with many events. As a result the park it’s own twitter account, website, and wikipedia article.
While on a walk, this last weekend, I took this photo at a lightrail station in the South End near Uptown Charlotte. Notice the pink building … it is one of Charlotte’s landmarks and is very interesting during the early morning sun. Those who own condo’s there have an outstanding view of Uptown Charlotte.
This photo was taken at the Bland Station. The pink building is called the Alington however their website is ThePinkBuilding.com (smile).
