Send Us Your Government Shutdown Photos And Videos

With the federal government grinding to a halt due to the shutdown, it's an unusual time around Washington and the rest of the country. We'd like you, our HuffPost readers, to help document all corners of this shutdown.

Is the national park or monument in your area shuttered? Did you get shut out of a Smithsonian museum? Please take a picture and share it with us. Are you a furloughed federal worker? Please share a photo with us of what you're up to.

Here's how you can share your photos (and videos or Vines) with us:
  • Instagram and Twitter: Please be sure to include the hashtag #hpshutdown as well as some basic contextual information.
  • Facebook: Visit our Facebook page and send us a message via the message button on the right-hand side of the page.
  • Email: Send us the photo and some basic contextual information to openreporting@huffingtonpost.com.

HuffPost will include your submissions in the gallery below and may use the photos for other stories. We'll credit you by name unless you'd prefer otherwise.
