I drove a solid 13 hours to find this shot of Charlotte’s skyline. I left Kitchener, Ontario at about 1pm on a Friday afternoon and it took me until about 2am on Saturday to make my way to Charlotte, North Carolina.
I took to the road to go and hang out with a stranger for roughly 36 hours. She welcomed me and showed me her city. We visited a vegan festival, a couple local breweries and walked around the downtown core where we high-fived with an interactive building facade.
It was an experience. I was completely burnt out by the time I made my way back home. Still, I’m glad that I went. I’m glad I saw places and things that I’d never seen before and I’m glad that I met new people.
