Not quit as fast as a NASCAR race but Ice Skating is still a thrill. Each year an ice rink is setup in front of the NASCAR Hall of Fame and a Northern experience comes to the South. It is always busy and great fun to watch.
The Charlotte Marathon was ran yesterday (November 12th) and as the photo shows it was cold. These two runners stayed warm with tin foil wrap. Actually this is a thing now and I assume you can buy these sheets in any running shop. I understand they are light weight and do a good job of blocking the wind.
This photo was taken at the intersection of South Tryon and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. For those who want to run next year; following is the Facebook page for the Charlotte Marathon.
The Omni Hotel is shown in this photo taken during the Veterans Day Parade. The large flag is the focus of the photo along with the distinctive architecture of the Omni. However, look closely and you will also see a drone which was taking photos of the parade.
I was pleased to have this photo opportunity … a young girl running and jumping on the Green in Uptown Charlotte .. glad my camera has a high speed shutter. Notice the fish sculptures in the background.
This photo was taken at 222 South Caldwell Street.
Our Saturday morning rituals include taking coffee to the Green (a park in front of our condo) and enjoying the activity. We always sit on a bench next to the fish sculptures and fountains. The reason is because they come with built in entertainment. Watching the children play is a joy and this Saturday there was a wedding at Saint Peters Catholic Church next to the fountains. In the background of this photo you can see one of those attending in a very colorful dress.
The good morning special at Dean and Deluca in Uptown Charlotte was French Toast and bacon. And the gentleman behind the sign skillfully and graciously prepares our breakfast every Saturday. We always order bagel sandwiches but the special was very appealing. But what caught my eye was the #goodmorning hashtag (smile).
At first I thought these driggers caution cones said danger … however after googling the word I think Driggers is the name of company. Possibly Driggers Electric & Control CO. This photo was taken at 500 South College Street in Uptown Charlotte.
Recently we meet this family attempting a selfie. I suggested they pose for a photo while I took it with my larger camera. Several photos were taken and shared with them. And this one is shared with you.
This photo was taken at the intersection of College Street and 3rd street in Uptown Charlotte.
