Sometime last year, in the summer perhaps, Vanessa and I were walking through Uptown Charlotte. I was showing her the various buildings where I had worked. One of those buildings was the Bank of America Corporate Center. The lobby of the Corporate Center is quite sumptuous containing nice leather chairs, live plants, plenty of marble, and some lovely murals painted high upon the walls. I would show you a picture of one, but B of A security has this policy…

I’ve been following the Facebook Page, Humans of New York for a while now. I love it! I love it so much that I bought the book of the same name. The name of the photographer is Brandon Stanton, who, according to the book, set out in the summer of 2010 to photographic census of New York. I don’t think that he could have even imagined where this would go … First, a little side trip: I love pictures of…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My friend, and fellow blogger, Tom Dills came up with an idea that he wanted to try. He wanted to catch the Lynx light rail here in Charlotte, exit at each stop, take a few pictures, and then resume the journey. We’d tried to do this some weeks earlier, but couldn’t arrange our schedules. On Saturday, we got the chance. So, Tom, Don Brown, another one of our photographer buddies, and I got together, boarded the train, and set off…

I was going through some of my pictures, thinking about how I felt during the time that I was taking them.

This time, as I walked through the desert, spent time reading, sleeping, walking, or perhaps doing nothing, I didn’t feel lonely at all … not one bit. I was great company to myself. I liked…

Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is). An architectural photographer had been in the area all day, taking pictures of the office space, of execs, etc. Well, a little after 6:00 PM, most everyone had cleared out except for the photographer, the lady who’d been helping him all day…

From the 13th floor, if I look west (to my right), I can see BB&T Stadium, new home of the Charlotte Knights minor league baseball team. I hadn’t realized that it was so close to where I worked. On Tuesday, I decided to go for a walk during lunch. It was a beautiful day, about 80 degrees or so. As I headed towards BB&T Stadium, I had to pass through a park that I didn’t even know existed. The name…
