  1. So I made the ultimate suburban dad move in 2019 when we bought a house here in Mooresville. We chose it for the schools and the proximity to countryside and the lake. We are loving the small-town life, after my wife grew up primarily in Charlotte and I spent 4 years in South End and 4 in east Charlotte. So Mooresville is quaint but growing, and all the new development and the health of the Charlotte MSA is awesome for our property value. Here are a few pics of the downtown area and the culture that we have grown to enjoy (while still loving Charlotte and being close).
  2. New Mooresville police headquarters is now officially under construction adjacent to the Mooresville Golf Club. https://www.lakenormanpublications.com/articles/simple-ceremony-celebrates-start-of-mooresville-police-department-construction/
  3. How about an oldie? Took this back in 2008 and it was one of my first skyline photos of Charlotte. I was just getting into photography.
  4. While walking thru Uptown recently, I wanted to check out the BLM mural along Tryon. It was impressive for sure. While there, I noticed this young black father with his sons, strolling along in quiet conversation. It reminded me that no matter our struggles or experience, we can all agree that we all should be respectful to those we may not fully understand. I imagine what that conversation with his boys was like.
  5. Probably the nicest alley in the country.
  6. I had no idea! Thanks for the great suggestions fellas. And I love food so yeah - good tip.
  7. If you were heading into Uptown for evening exploration and needed somewhere affordable and safe to park, where would you choose? I used to park at 7th St Station but I'm not rich. Any other good options? I know you guys will know.
  8. I'd like to try 7th Street Station, but I tend to get bothered by security every time I take a camera out up there. They'll definitely shut me down if I get the tripod set up. On second thought, a quick trip to the mountains wouldn't hurt. Great vistas up there.
  9. Haha I was just reading about the specifics so I can try. I only have lenses that go up to 300mm so I'm not going to get anything with great detail. I know of some folks in here with top-notch equipment that should try Something a little different for the photo of the day. I like the gritty area off Seaboard St and the views you can get.
  10. I looked it up and if I had a rooftop to borrow, I'd do it. Someone with a drone could have fun with that angle.
