Harvey B. Gantt Center

the Harvey B. Ghatt Center in Uptown Charlotte
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 was taken at 551 S Tryon St. Following is a link to the website for Harvey B. Gantt Center.


Challenges of taking photos
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 Art400 South Tryon300 South Tryon … the Bank of America CenterThree Wells Fargo Center … and the Ratcliffe Condos.

This photo was taken near the intersection of East Stonewall and North Tryon, looking North East.

BOA Center

The BOA Center in Uptown Charlotte
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.
