Just wanted to post a quick update to my Project 365 (also known this year in the gallery as P365.me :2012), which was started back on November 29th 2011. Today makes Day 127 on a project that has been on My List for years and years now. Taking at least one unique photo every day seems to be a simple, easy thing, but in reality when you really start to attempt something like this you quickly see how many things can get in the way. Honestly the only thing making this possible for me at this point is my iPhone, otherwise, time would have its way. I would say 80-85% of all my P365.me images have come from my iPhone, and without it, this project would most likely be all but impossible. For a more detailed explanation visit my Project 365 page.
The image above represents March 2012. This is one reason why I really wanted to do this project and stick with it. It is a snap shot (literally) of a month in time. I try to make each shot unique, but when you get buried into the depths of routine sometimes it hard, and you end up with a lot of shots in the car, and of the dog. The cool thing is, I can remember every single shot, where I was, what I was doing, and so on, and I can do the same thing for shots I took 10 years ago. Images are such a powerful reminder of time and place.
[On a side note, I have several pre-dated posts that go along with this one that are finally ready to go on the blog. Between that and me having to manually re-code each blog post from my transfer from wordpress.org to wordpress.com my rss readers are going to still get some old updates. I’m sorry for spamming my rss readers, I wish there was a way for me to change it until all the updates are done, but there isn’t, sorry. I’m trying to get all the posts updated, time permitting, so it will stop hammering my rss feed.]
A rare snowstorm hit the state of Alabama this weekend. It was 3,319 days since any measurable snow was recorded at the Birmingham airport and today they reported 2 inches of snow. That said, we are two hours southeast of Birmingham so I am sure it has been even longer down here.Â It was quite a storm and it snowed almost all day today until the sun went down. It is supposed to get into the mid-20’s tonight so all that snow is going to freeze and should stick around at least until tomorrow.
I took these images today on my way to Cornerstone and some here at the house once I got home. No telling when the next heavy snowfall will come down to Auburn so I tried to take as many photos and video as I could. The one unique shot here is of our tree swing. This will make just about every weather season we could get from the same angle. I now have Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, snow, rain, and several others which I will post all together. You can see all the photos from the snow storm on my flickr account here or go right to the March 2009 Snowstorm gallery.
This was one heck of a snow storm we had today, and I had to go over to Auburn to take some photos of Samford in the snow. Over the past two days we have had tornado warnings, then 70 degree sunshine, and the very next day we had several inches of snow. I did manage to get out and take several shots of the snow storm today and didn’t want to put them all in one post so here are some photos of Samford Hall on Auburn University in the snow along with one shot of Toomer’s Corner Drugs as well.
Every time you think you have seen every angle of one building (Samford Hall) something happens to make for a great new and fresh image. I took these about 7:30am before the snow really got going today, and I wasn’t alone, there were crowds down on campus by the time I got there and I did see that Aubie made an appearance in the snow as well.
It must have been about 8-10 years since it has snowed this much in Auburn so there are a few images of Samford in the snow but I am not sure what the record is for total accumulation, but we came close today.
