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.
This photo presented challenges given the shadow and light contrast. In addition there was distortion, in the angle of the buildings, which is a common challenge with close up skylines. Thanks to photo shop I was pleased with the results.
The buildings in the photo (from left to right) include: the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art … 400 South Tryon … 300 South Tryon … the Bank of America Center … Three Wells Fargo Center … and the Ratcliffe Condos.
This photo was taken near the intersection of East Stonewall and North Tryon, looking North East.
The Ratcliffe in the evening sun is especially appealing. Love the windows and the architecture of the building.
This photo was taken at 435 South Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte.
The Historic Ratcliffe Flowers sign stands in the Green with the Ratcliffe condos in the background. There is an interesting story, in the Charlotte Business Journal
, about the Ratcliffe’s Flowers building, the construction of the condos, and the preservation and incorporation of the original architecture.
This photo was taken at 435 South Tryon Street. Following is a link to the Historic Landmark Commission website with detail about the sign.
We are very pleased with our choice to purchase in the Ratcliffe Condos in Uptown Charlotte. We are especially pleased with the strength of the condo association and the quality of the construction. The location is also a big plus. The condos overlook a very enjoyable park called The Green, the Mint Museum
and Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
are across the street, and the condos are connected to the Overstreet Mall
which connects buildings throughout Uptown. Also, we are very pleased that the Childress Klein WMCA
is in the Overstreet Mall.

Welcome to Charlotte Daily photo … today’s photo is of a sign post stating that Charlotte NC is the Center of the Known World! The sign post is in The Green a pocket park in Uptown Charlotte … actually Connie and I live in the Ratcliffe Condo’s overlooking The Green so I like to joke that our address is Center of the Known World, Unit 707, Charlotte NC (smile).
Before moving to Charlotte we published Greenville Daily Photo and shared a photo daily since 2006. Over 3,000 photos and still going strong thanks to friends and contributors who want to keep the site active.
In similar fashion we plan to share one photo a day about Charlotte. We live, play, and work in Uptown which offers many photo opportunities.
Please enjoy, tell your friends, and visit often.
Denton and Connie Harryman
PS: This photo was taken on The Green at 435 S Tryon Street.
