Early Morning in Charlotte, NC

There wasn't much going on yesterday...so this is it.
You guys have cable cars there? I thought that was a San Francisco thing! I wish we had some in our city, I love them

Beautiful shot! Does that say "free ride" on the trolley? Very picturesque!

Actually, that is one of the many diesel engine free ride trolleys that run along the main streets of uptown Charlotte...a salute to the old electric trolley line that serviced uptown and close lying neighborhood areas at the turn of the (20th) century. The relatively new light rail line now runs about 20 miles from uptown to the suburbs for commuters. I love the looks of them and they're great for jumping a ride when the weather is rainy or cold!

I love this photo. I love the flare on the bus head light and the fact that it is infront of an eye optix clinic. Feels like a street eye examination!! Really nice photo.

Great shot. I love the look of southern cities. Tree lined streets and trolleys are so quaint.

This is a lovely shot, Peggy. Has a real early-morning feel to it and that trolley with its headlight gives it that atmosphere.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments!
@ Bill - CLT really is a beautiful city. A lot of pride and effort is taken in making the center city area vibrant, safe, and clean.
Y'all come visit the Queen City!
