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 was a quick snap in the Latta Arcade. It is a good place to grab lunch. Also, the old photos on the wall are enjoyable. However, the most enjoyable aspect is found at the end the arcade … it opens on to an open air pavilion which is lined with bars.
This photo was taken at 320 South Tryon.
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.
This statue is one of four at the intersection of Trade and Tryon in uptown Charlotte. The scene depicts a miner poring gold on the head of a banker!
The art work is called Commerce.
Personally I like that each statue is two separate pieces of art detecting an aspect of Charlotte’s history.
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.
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.
This photo was taken during an evening stroll though Romare Bearden Park.
The art is called Spiral Odyssey and was created by Richard Hunt. There is an interesting story behind the art and it’s tribute to Romare Bearden.
The photo was taken at 300 South Church Street in Uptown Charlotte
On a recent stroll I was surprised to see horses on Tryon. The scene is similar to a recent photo titled Dog Crossing. Both the horses and the dogs have little bit of a Beatles Abbey Road album cover feel.
This photo taken at 230 South Tryon. The building in the background is a condo complex called 230 South Tryon.
This photo was taken on a recent stroll in Uptown. We have not been yet however we will go soon.
The website says it’s a Nationally Acclaimed Contemporary Arts Center.
The McColl Center for Art and Innovation is at 721 North Tryon.
Connie and I are enjoying a few vacation days at Seabrook Island which is four hours from Charlotte
This photo is from our stroll on the beach today. The weather was nice with a high of 71 Fahrenheit.
Seabrook Island is near Charleston South Carolina.
