Bunch Road is one of those roads that used to be rural, but now has more of a suburban feel. It connects the Northwest High School area to Oak Ridge and Summerfield. The above photo features an older, modest home on the road. And the mature trees in the yard tower over the tiny house. Look at how beautiful the yard looks on the cusp of everything blooming. The photo was taken this past Saturday, after the skies were gray for much of the day and then early evening, the sun came out to make everything look fresh and clean.... Continue reading

The weather in Greensboro has been very fickle lately. From sunny days to heavy rains to strong winds, the city has experienced several seasons in the last few weeks. The above photo shows a driveway on a hill in a suburban neighborhood in northwest Greensboro. The cherry blossoms have been beat to the ground from the winds and rain. However, in their own way, the petals are beautiful as they carpet the cement in pink. Peeking over the crest is the family's basketball goal. In March, 2005, Eric Tenen launched Paris Daily Photo. Eric is the reason there is a... Continue reading

Stanley Huff Road is undergoing quite a bit of change. What was formerly farmland with horses and cows is starting to get housing developments. The above photo shows one of the homes on the 5850 and 5840 lots with structures being built by Greensboro builder Gary Jobe. We're betting they are going to be ultra modern, and built to respect living sustainably; perhaps even LEED certified. The angles and placement of the glass hint at passive solar heating. When land that was previously rural farmland gets repurposed for suburban living, it is always nice if great thought is put into... Continue reading

Pathways Church began in Sevierville, TN in 1996 and next a campus opened in Knoxville, TN. Now, a third campus has opened in Greensboro. Pathways in Greensboro is located on Jessup Grove Road. The former church, The Grove, at first partnered with Pathways. However, as the congregation grew and members became more and more energized with the sermons and teachings of the Pathways Church, The Grove decided to merge with Pathways. Since merging, the congregation is growing and the building has undergone renovations. In the above photo, all is quiet in the church on Saturday afternoon. Perhaps the car belongs...

If you are so inclined, and you haven't already, it is time to plow the fields! Greensboro has had so much rain lately, it is kind of hard to fit in a planting. So far, it hasn't heated up excessively and cold weather crops are still thriving. If you love seeing slices of rural America and live in Greensboro, consider taking the back roads to Kernersville or Burlington and you will see many scenes, like the one above, along the way. The above photo was taken on a recent venture to Kernersville. With all the add-ons, this house is actually... Continue reading

It is amazing how much you can learn about a people from the back of a car. The above person, who either lives in Greensboro or was passing through, has so much to share here. First, they drive a mustang and love their vehicle enough to pay for a vanity tag. They must love coffee, as they were parked outside a Greensboro Starbucks. While the VrumVrum-mobile is registered in North Carolina, an they love the southern Outer Banks (SOBX), they also have a spot in their heart for West Virginia. They love shelties and then there is SASS. That one,... Continue reading

'Tis the season for the Lady Banks rosees to bloom. This hardy, thornless, climbing rose has its origins in Central China, and came to the USA via England. It was named by Sir Joseph Banks who named it after his wife. The yellow variety above, located in Sunset Hills, looks lovely growing on the white picket fence. We featured this bush nine years ago in 2010. Last time, Harley Houston from NCA&T University contacted us and even arranged to get cutting of the Lady Banks rose. Over the years, Harley has been very committed to gardening, especially planting in raised... Continue reading

With the Virginia win over Texas Tech on Monday night, basketball season will pretty much be on hold until November. However, for sports fans, there are plenty of opportunities to see good baseball in the Greensboro area. From little league to high school teams, AAU teams, college teams, and the minor league, you can find baseball here almost every night of the week. The above photo was taken on Saturday when the UNCG Spartans were continuing a game against Furman University that had been stopped the night before due to rain. In the above photo, the pitcher was warming up.... Continue reading

Every April, for 37 years, UNCG has held an International Festival. In recent years, it has been held on the Kaplan Lawn, in front of the Elliot University Center. The above photo features the dance stage with the Jackson Library serving as a backdrop for the performers. The festival is a chance for students and their friends and families to celebrate their ethnic heritage. A woman whose daughter was working in the Morocco booth wanted attendees to know how much she loves America and the fact that people from countries that haven't historically gotten along can live alongside each other...

It is as if spring came out of nowhere and arrived in Greensboro this past weekend. Friday was rainy; Saturday and Sunday were glorious and blossoms started opening up. The above are redbud blossoms in a yard in the northern end go Greensboro. The eastern redbud is a small, fast growing tree native to the area. They look around the same time as the dogwoods and azaleas, adding a showy display when other deciduous trees have not yet started to leaf out. The redbud is a very hardy tree and does not appear to tempt the deer. Hopefully, you had... Continue reading

For some college students, religious organizations play a very important role. Other students may go their whole college years without visiting the office of a campus faith group. The UNCG faith groups are housed in the northeast corner of the Walker Avenue Parking Deck. Yellow banners name the religious groups served by the Smith Campus Ministries Center on Stirling Street. There are Baptist, Catholic, Jewish, and Wesley-Luther Campus groups. Muslim students are served by the UNCG Muslim Students Association. The above photo features the lines for the food trucks yesterday, during UNCG's International Festival. Many people may not have noticed... Continue reading

Sometimes, it may seem like we're a bit serious on Greensboro Daily Photo. Today, we'll infuse a little humor into this ten-year-old blog. Today, we ask if you know where this "Pretty in Pink" bathroom is located. Here is a hint. This Pepto-Bismol, unisex bathroom is located downtown. It is a locally-owned business and the owner is very committed to making downtown a great place to shop. Maybe you can find this bathroom, when you are out shopping this weekend. Between shopping at farmers markets, attending UNCG's International Festival, watching one of the final four basketball games, and running errands,... Continue reading

This building, at the corner of South Tate Street and West Gate City Boulevard, has housed many businesses over the years. It is located in a part of town that is changing drastically. With UNCG's expansion across Gate City to the edge of the Glenwood neighborhood, college students are seen regularly, walking to and from the two parts of campus. It is amazing when walking, what you see that you might otherwise miss. For example, on foot, one notices the set of stairs behind the building. Why were they put there? Was it to load and unload inventory or to... Continue reading

The Lincoln Financial Group building has changed owners and names more than once, but it continues to be the iconic skyscraper of downtown Greensboro. The gothic revival style architecture of the taller building, built in 1990. fits in with the older, Jefferson Standard building that dates to 1922. It is hard to believe that they have a 68-year age difference. This mighty fortress at the corner of Elm and Market Streets is built from marble, terra cotta, and marble. Julian Price, president of Jefferson Standard Life Insurance, paid in full for his company's headquarters, because he didn't believe in carrying... Continue reading

Over the couple of decades, North Battleground has gone from seeming like a sleepy little part of Greensboro, far from downtown to a busy access road to the Greensboro Urban Loop. Highway 220 is the north/south road stretching from Rockingham, NC in Richmond County, to its interchange with New York State Route 17. The above photo was taken yesterday, at about 6:30 pm, when the bright sun, low to the horizon brought out the color in everything. Earlier in the day, it actually snowed in Greensboro. It isn't very common for us to have an April snow. Fortunately, temperatures didn't... Continue reading

Many participants dress in traditional clothing and many bring food for attendees to sample. The event is free and open to the public. This year is the 37th annual International Festival. The vibrant, interactive event has something for people of all ages and is... Continue reading

This photo, taken on Saturday in northwest Greensboro shows that the hyacinths may have bloomed just a little early since the weather is predicted to dip below freezing this week. The lenten roses and the cold weather crops should be happy, but bulbs and tree blossoms just may suffer. Let's hope for the best. The two story brick colonial home peeking out of the upper right-hand corner of the photo is a common construction for this area. This particular home uses a buttery, colonial yellow for the trim and for the City Daily Photo community, the April theme is yellow.... Continue reading

The Main Street Baptist Church in Kernersville is located just a few miles west of the Guilford County Line. The main building of the church is an imposing brick building that has the look of a traditional, southern church. However, the building in the above photo is also a part of the church. It houses the daycare and offices. Looking more like a 1970's office building, it is quite intriguing. A square structure like this one, with a cross on the facade, is unusual for a church. The school-bus yellow SUV out front adds quite a bit of visual interest;... Continue reading

Last night, the Triad Auburn Club met at Hickory Tavern on Stratford Road in Winston-Salem to watch Auburn soar to victory over the Carolina Tarheels. On Sunday, the club will come to Greensboro and Auburn fans will meet at Fat Dogs at the corner of South Holden Road and Spring Garden to see if the Auburn Tigers will qualify for the final four. Likely, many brackets in North Carolina were ruined with the Auburn win over Carolina. However, Auburn fans from Greensboro are good sports, very courteous, and super excited to see Auburn play in the Elite 8. The last... Continue reading

When the sun shines in the spring in Greensboro, it feels as if the whole city is enveloped in blossoms. The above photo was taken last weekend. It reminds us of when young children make blanket forts where they sit, feeling secure and peaceful, passing away the day. May you find a space, blanketed in blossoms, to sit and reflect on the beauty of a warm spring day in Greensboro. Peak cherry blossom time for Washington, D.C., is predicted to be April 1st. Perhaps a road trip is in order. It is about a five hour drive from Greensboro. Happy... Continue reading

Can you guess what this is? It is a to-scale sculptural installation of a room full of furniture made out of heavyweight drawing paper. North Carolina artist, Sara Farrington, who lives in Creedmoor, made it in 2018. Called "Model Home, " it is part of a the 45th annual Art-on-Paper exhibit at the Weatherspoon Art Museum. The Weatherspoon, located at the corner of Tate and Spring Garden streets on UNCGs campus, brings so much thought-provoking art to Greensboro. Sara's furniture is tied in to the notion of domestic perfection and what society expects of adults, goals Sara sees as unattainable.... Continue reading

North Carolina's Highway 66 is a north/south route that runs through the easternmost corner of Forsyth County, just west of Greensboro. If you want to see rural North Carolina the way it used to be, consider a drive along Highway 66 on a Saturday morning. You will see people walking to the front of their property to pick up their newspaper in their pajamas; people doing yard work; people sitting on their porch waving at those who drive by; plowed fields ready to be planted; neighbors talking to each other; and, sometimes, items in yards that many neighborhoods would not...

The above photo was taken this past weekend on a back road between West Market Street and Kernersville, that area where you can't be completely sure whether you are in Guilford or Forsyth County. This is rural North Carolina at its best; the way things used to be. From the looks of the home, it might not be around much longer. However, the horses look well cared for and happy on the property. Greensboro and the surrounding areas have a lot of horse farms. Scenic country vistas, like this one, are quickly being replaced by apartment complexes and Sheetz gas... Continue reading

This past Saturday, the Kiwanis Club of High Point held their 41st Annual Pancake Day. The 9am celebrity pancake flipper was Cindy Farmer, Morning News Anchor, on FOX8. Cindy, a Virginia Tech graduate, has been working in TV news since moving to Greensboro in 1990. Her passion is sharing good news about our community, especially the local schools. She is equally passionate about volunteering her time and energy for worthy causes. In the above photo, Cindy is seen masterfully making Micky Mouse pancakes for the children in the pancake line. Cindy has won many awards, including an Emmy for Community... Continue reading
