Reader Slide Shows

The Charlotte Observer’s Web site,, has been publishing reader-generated slide shows during big local weather stories. “One of our traditions is getting readers involved in telling the story of major weather events,” the site wrote during an unusual January snow storm. “Since schools are closed today, and many of you won’t be going anywhere, get out your digital cameras and send us snow photos: your backyard, your stuck car, your dog, your kids, etc.” The site then published two slide shows using the best ones (here and here). The photos are by no means professional quality — but they offer a fresh, unique perspective on the storms’ impact. And they have the homey-feeling of a family photo album, except that in this case the family is one of Observer readers.
