Random Shots: A year-round Pepper Place Market?

Still waiting to get some additional information about this space, but it is currently being worked on in Birmingham’s Pepper Place. It appears that it will be another option for those seeking fresh produce in Birmingham (in addition to Jones Valley Urban Farm and the Jefferson County Farmers Market on Finley Avenue and a few others recently profiled in this Birmingham Weekly post). The sign says that the Farmers Market Cooperative will be “coming soon” though.

This crowd had a familiar face (or two)

Among the parents sampling Birmingham’s civil rights history with 5th grade schoolchildren from Texas was a familiar face: André “3000” Benjamin.

The mayor… in an Indy Car?

Imagine my surprise when the FedEx delivery guy comes in where I’m sitting in downtown Birmingham and asks if any of us saw the Indy Car speeding down 20th Street North yesterday morning with Mayor Larry Langford driving. None of us there had, but, after some digging around on Twitter, we found at least one photo floating around online (thanks @vulcansmuse & @rachelpinson). Plus, there’s also this video courtesy of Fox 6 available on their site this morning.

Turns out the mayor wasn’t behind the wheel, but enjoying the ride as he reminded folks about this weekend’s Indy Car test runs out at Barber. Others who were out at the Firestone store in Pelham had the same opportunity to ride in an Indy Car yesterday afternoon.

There were some folks though that wished that they had seen the mayor in person later in the day… in Southtown.

Photos from the bridge crossing Jubilee

Untitled by Lynsey Weatherspoon. Special to bhamterminal.comThis weekend crowds gathered in Selma, AL the annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee. The event is held every year to commemorate the events of Bloody Sunday on Selma’s Edmund Pettis Bridge during the first of the Selma to Montgomery marches. This year, a Terminal reader decided to become a contributor and document the events of the weekend for us. Please click here and view the images submitted by Lynsey Weatherspoon (and take a moment to thank her in the comments section for sharing them with us).

UPDATE: 2.26.2010 – Lynsey’s website has been relocated and she’s chosen to share her photos with Pavo Magazine. Head on over and check them out.

Random Shots: What a difference a week makes

As Birmingham wakes up to the start of Daylight Savings Time and hints at temperatures getting close to 80°, we thought we’d share a few images from last week’s snowfall.

Bob Farley headed out to Ruffner Mountain Nature Center shortly after the 3″ had finished accumulating, giving us this photo set over in The Gallery.


Everybody won this weekend

There was some beautiful weather with weekend, perfect for those that participated in the 8th running of the Mercedes Marathon & Half Marathon as well as the BE5K race on Saturday. Congratulations to the thousands that participated as well as to all of the winners.

While the official results are not yet posted on the site, you can check out results from previous years and have it bookmarked for when they’re certified. Check out Fox 6’s website for video of children crossing the finish line for the Kid’s Marathon. 

Gordon Bell ventured out yesterday morning and took some great images, now available for you to take a look at over in The Gallery.

By the way, if you want to share your photos from race day with the folks here on the site and you’re on Flickr, add them to The Terminal’s Flickr group and we’ll get them up here as soon as possible.
