Lighting up the night for the Carolina Panthers

Yes, yes, yes!  In their 21st season in the National Football League, the Carolina Panthers are representing the National Football Conference in the super bowl.  This will be their second appearance, but this time there will be no Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunctions. (although some may be waiting for a BeyoncĂ© malfunction).  Superbowl 50 should see the Panthers bring home the trophy against the Denver Broncos.

Charlotte, NC is very proud of this team, and the way they’ve gone about their business this year.  With an impressive record of 17 wins and 1 defeat, we were just one win shy of having a perfect season.  To show their appreciation, the downtown / uptown of Charlotte has been lit up in the Panther blue colors.

I finally had the chance to roll out my new tripod.  Santa Claus (by way of my lovely wife Pam) delivered it to me, and as I was headed home, decided it was time to take it for a spin.  I found a clear evening, and a perfect nighttime view of the skyline, and fired away with a long exposure.  I was pleased with my results.  Be on the lookout for more #343projects after dark.
