Monochrome Monday: Uptown Charlotte Cityscapes

I’m starting a street photography and urban landscape series from a recent visit to my hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. Arriving early mornings, before my all day meeting sessions in Uptown, I found a lot of great urban subjects to cover. Late afternoon walks after work also offered up some great street photography opportunities.

Toronto Street Photography, pt 3

It’s time to leave Toronto with this final street photography post. I was fortunate to be in such a cool city with a mix of European contemporary flare, old city charm and diverse ethnic character. An excellent recipe for street photography!

Toronto Architectural Abstracts and Cityscapes, Pt 3

I expect this to be the final post of Toronto architectural abstracts, and following this should be a final street photography post. I’ve enjoyed exploring the pushed HDRish styling used in this series. I hope you have as well.

Victoria St Urban Cityscape Compositions

High above Victoria St in Toronto, I spied this brave fellow painting the metal window framing of a twenty story building.  At this point in time, the painter was painstakingly applying primer.  So he had to go back over the face of this structure again to apply the final coat of red!  I would say these are mashup of architectural abstracts and street photography.

Street Vignettes from Greene St in Five Points

As in much of my work, this post features the unique surfaces and textures resulting from continuous human use and and interaction over the passage of time.

These urban cityscape vignettes were captured outside of Papa Jazz Record Shoppe on Greene St in the Five Points area of Columbia, adjacent to the University of South Carolina.  My wife, and her parents, were in town to have a birthday lunch in Five Points with our freshman son Parker at the University of South Carolina.  While waiting on our table, I excused myself the cover the local cityscape.

Over past several visits, I had eyed this exterior wall outside of Papa Jazz Record Shoppe on Greene St.  Luckily, it was only a block away from our restaurant.  This is definitely your typical college town, old school record/CD store.  Perhaps next time, I’ll have time to checkout the racks of new and used recordings inside.
