OPTIMIST HALL! Hands down my favorite place in Charlotte to take my whole family for a meal with 💯 agreement! So many great food vendors to choose from, lots of seating, parking, and much more! So it was a ton of fun photographing the storefronts for my client @ratzlaffconstruction who did 7 of the upfits there! I may even drop a cool hype video... 🤔. Have a great Sunday everyone! I tagged all the amazing restaurants at @optimisthallclt so check them out for lunch sometime soon! . 📷: @the5and2project . #eatlocal #shoplocal #supportlocal #704 #keeppounding #cltvideographer #charlottenc #cltphotographer #qcphotographer #qcvideographer #northcharlotte #campnorthend #optimistpark #optimisthall #exploreclt #cltguide #scoopcharlotte #clt.today #thingstodoincharlotte #discoverclt #charlottesgotalot #cltiscreative #yelpclt #dji #djiphotography #cltnc #optimist #foodcourt

What could be more pristine than rolling hills, beautiful countryside, and a carriage ride overlooking a French Chateau in the mountains Western North Carolina. . . . . #Biltmore #biltmoreestate #WNC #VisitNC #visitAsheville #BlueridgeMoments #blueridgeoutdoors #BlueRidgeMountains #ourstate #Carriageride

Blue Ridge Sunrise: I pulled an all-nighter in Asheville to arrive at Mt. Mitchell before early light. No previous experience at this location, I was partly a scouting mission. Access to the peak was not open while the sun breached the horizon right at 07:00, so I rushed to a nearby mountainside view to witness the moment. I had travelled appx. 1,500 miles over 10 days and my truck broke down once by this point,. It was a much anticipated moment on the tail end of a long journey not yet complete. The last sunrise of my week off work, I tried to make the most of it. The view along this beautiful stretch of roadway is some of the most amazing I’ve seen coast to coast. Shot at f/22 for the “sun burst” effect, the light did the rest of the work as it sung off the sides of an endless rolling mountain range. ⛰🌄 #VisitNC#ExploreCarolina #WeLoveNC#MountMitchell #Sunrise#GoldenHour #Mountains#Appalachia #BlueRidgeMountains #MicroFourThirds #MicroFourNerds #OnlyInNorthCarolina #SunsetMadness#Earth #BlueRidgeMoments #BlueRidgeParkway

You can’t help but feel a little magic in the air standing here on the 18th as the sun comes up. Look closely in the second pic for the Carolina moon directly above the cupola. Couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so figured share both 😁 . . . #pinehurst #pinehurstresort #sunrise #golfdestination #golfhistory #paynestewart #pinehurstno2 #bucketlist
