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.
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.
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 was taken on my walk home after a long day and late night at work.

This photo shows a wider angle from yesterday’s photo. The building in the foreground is the Harvey B. Gantt Center, for African American Arts and Culture. It is a beautiful building with interesting architecture and outstanding exhibits … the parking lot, in the photo, will soon be a new office tower.

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.

This photo was taken at 300 South Brevard Street just outside of the ATT building in Uptown Charlotte. Interestingly I found an article which indicates ATT will be vacating the building in 2015. I wonder if they will take Alexander with them (smile).
Today’s photo shows the BOA Center which is the tallest building in Charlotte. Look closely, at previous photos, and you will often find it in the Charlotte skyline. A friend of mine had the good fortune to attend a party on the top floor … Uptown in the crown (smile).
The wikipedia article indicates that gold was found during excavation for the foundation of the BOA Center … Gold makes a solid foundation for a Bank (smile).
The Bank of America Corporate Center is located at 150 N College Street.
I took this photo because the evening light cast the Trademark Building in blue … It is interesting how light and shadows have such a significant impact on what we see … It is a beautify building with upscale condos which have outstanding views and in this case outstanding colors.
