Photos of Alabama topics, history, etc.
I received the email below recently from Mr. John Morse, the man behind the wonderful BhamWiki and related projects http://www.bhamwiki.com/w/Main_Page He lists several links for Alabama-related photos…
Another source that comes to mind is the Alabama railfans group at Yahoo:
http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/alrails/ Subscribers there exchange massive numbers of photos, link to others, etc.

Today you linked to photos tagged " Alabama " at Flickr. There are a few more reliable ways to find interesting photos depicting our state.
First off, more than 100 million of the photos on Flickr have geographic coordinate data attached to them. These can be browsed using the map function: ( http://www.flickr.com/map?&fLat=32.601&fLon=-86.6807&zl=11 ) - you can zoom and pan to navigate the map, brining up more selections, or you can search the map for tags like "waterfall", "barn", "church", etc.
There are also numerous Alabama related groups to which members contribute and discuss their photos. The Magic City Flickr Group is, along with Bhamwiki, part of my so-called "Project to Document the Birmingham District". It can be found here ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/magic_city/ ). Here are some other choice ones (among many):
