This was taken during a stroll through the city one Sunday morning as the early morning sun was hitting the building. I loved the contrast that this scene presented, and it especially comes out when viewed in black and white. It’s the water hookup for the fire department on a skyscraper in downtown Charlotte.

Chris Horner is a freelance photographer based in Charlotte, NC USA. Chris started becoming serious about photography about two years ago. His main topic of interest is in capturing urban scenes. Chris started primarily with this theme, and then carried his photography skills into another area that he loves – vehicles and racing. Others began taking notice of his work through what he shared on the web and in person. Soon he was creating fine art prints for people to enjoy in their homes and offices. That in turn got the attention of some local small business owners, who started requesting Chris to create images they could use in their marketing. Chris is looking to grow his commercial business since he has always enjoyed working with other entrepreneurs and helping business owners find success in their endeavors.
