The Charlotte lite rail system has a public service message which caught my eye. The message is “Tracks are not for photos!”. Note that I am not encouraging the behavior by also sharing the sign which encourages “Live on the Edge”.
In addition to sharing the public service message I am sharing a second photo which shows the popular Rail Trail which is next to the lite rail tracks. My wife and I, along which many others, enjoy walking the Rail Trail.
This photo was taken a week ago when the CIAA basketball tournament was in town. Lowes was making an advertising pitch to the hoops fans in town. The location is the Epicenter which has the highest concentration of party spots in town.
We made a short trip recently and stopped at a Starbooks in Fort Mill South Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. This photo shows a peach orchard at Baxter Towne Center which has a village look and feel. If we did not live in Uptown Charlotte this would be my second of third choice.
This photo was taken on the Rail Trail in the South End of Charlotte. The photo is of a temporary art exhibit and is called the Passage. As a person walks through the passage they are surrounded by lights and sound.
On a walk, through Uptown Charlotte, this scene caught my eye. The flowering tree is in a small park called the Green. The building, in the background, is the Museum Tower apartments. The apartments are built on top of the Mint Museum.
On a personal note. The Green is next to the condos we live in. As a result this is a scene we enjoy regularly.
This photo was taken last weekend on a walk from Uptown, along the Little Sugar Creek Greenway, East Boulevard , and the Rail Trail in the South End. This photo was take next to the bridge crossing the traffic loop around uptown. The buildings in the background are the Bank of America Tower, the Duke Energy Center, and the Alley building.
