#ALsnOMG11: The next day

A better perspective - #ALsnOMG11. acnatta/FlickrWe figured we’d share the view from just outside our window this morning. It may look beautiful, but it’s not something you’ll want to venture out in this morning if you don’t have to.

We’re currently hearing multiple reports of dangerous and impassible roads, layers of snow and ice blanketing the streets of metro Birmingham, AL and most area businesses (and government offices) are closed. While it’ll probably be nice to take a couple of pictures from right outside your door (we’ve set up a page with all of the ways you may do so & we’ll share any that come in), we’re hoping that folks for the most part stay inside today.

Share your snow photos with The Terminal

A snowman on the Birmingham Green acnatta/FlickrThe Magic City looks more like a winter wonderland this morning than normal after a snowstorm passed through the city yesterday afternoon and evening, leaving the city with a rare 1-2″ inches of snow depending on where you were.

Whether at the Railroad Park construction site, the Birmingham Green (shown here) or over the mountain, It looked pretty cool yesterday and it’s a safe bet that you thought so too.

A photo gallery’s been set up on the site to showcase snowfall images you may want to share from yesterday or today. A few photos have already up too and we’re hoping that you’ll feel like adding yours to the mix. There will be definitely be some additional photos posted during the day from the site’s contributors.

Hopefully you were able to stay safe last night as roads iced over and area officials made the right decision to close most state highways and access to elevated portions of metro Birmingham interstates. Continue to use caution while out there this morning.

Take photos of what’s IN

The IN Birmingham campaign’s been making a lot of folks in the area consider just what that means and how to record it. Libby’s been filling us in on what some of the results have been from the nominations that were collected (here’s her current post), now the folks over at a new Birmingham area photoblog are asking folks to submit photos to their site.

And while there are currently several photos in the Magic City Flickr Group as well as our own Terminal Flickr Group, the more places these photos are shared, particularly when associated with this question, the better!

An opportunity for area photographers

We got an earlier this afternoon about an opportunity for photographers. (We would have gotten it up then, but as you can probably tell if you’re reading us on the front page, we were a little busy Smile).

Apparently a client of o2 ideas is looking for a photograph to be used as a poster backdrop for a cultural training meeting. The image needs to “capture” Alabama and Georgia because that is where these specific employees work and live. For this particular project they want a “nature” image that encapsulates the “Southern Experience”. Pictures can be from any season and do not need to include people or animals.

Submission guidelines after the jump…
