A UFO In CLT


Someone pointed out to me today that it had been ages since I posted anything to the blog, and I suppose they are correct. I've been busy with other things, and time sort of gets away from me. So here's something from my trip to Charlotte, NC that I meant to bring you earlier. This is a piece of public art located in downtown called Grande Disco. It's quite the impressive piece, and it was one of the things I wanted to make sure I saw while in Charlotte. It reminded me a little of a Borg spaceship (in a new shape that we haven't seen before, but plausible in my mind) or perhaps the spaceship that brought the giant cockroach to earth in Men In Black. Either way, it's an impressive piece of work. I think it used to spin, but it's currently fixed in place.



Hmmm, I guess this piece isn't unique.

Looking at all of those negative strips, I'm guessing the ship crashed into a 24-hour photo shop.

(Sorry.)

Very cool piece, and great shots. The close-up is very "Close Encounters." And I've always wanted to type "The close-up is very 'Close Encounters.'"
