The Evening Post: Photos That Represent Alabama

Geek Alabama Evening Post

It’s time to open the Geek Alabama super-duper mail bag!  And for this post; I got a e-mail from Leah Prendergast who is the Online Marketing Executive for HostelBookers.com.  The e-mailer wanted me to send 2-5 photos that I feel represent the State of Alabama, These could be landscape shots, weather shots, land marks, streets, shops, festivals etc.

So I am going to post five photos that best represent the state of Alabama.  I thought about what to post and I decided to post five photos that best represent the people who lives in Alabama.  Here are my five photos about Alabama.

1.  Alabama is known for people who follows the Christian faith.  One thing you will find is the amount of people who follows God and prays daily.  Also, many people regularly attends church in Alabama.  This photo was taken in April 2012.weekend-011
