Beacon's new official website needs your photos

A revamped version of the city of Beacon's official website is currently being developed. Randall Martin is acting in the role of volunteer "photo editor" for the site's photographic content, and he's looking for content from the public. Here are a few details the project and what kind of material is being sought:

I'm volunteering with a team of people to revamp the official City of Beacon
website. This is another no-budget project. I have been dubbed "photo editor"
and have been charged with the responsibility of finding local photographers who
may want to donate interesting iconic images of Beacon to be included on a slide
show on the home page.
There will also be themed galleries, ongoing changing
feature stories that will need to be illustrated and events calendars.
There will
also be links to contributor' s websites and/or contact info. Let me know if you'd
be interested either now or in the future. "Now" means before Thanksgiving. If you
know someone else who might be helpful you could let me know.
Examples of images we are looking for:

Firstly: While beautifully decaying buildings make nice subjects for photography, we have determined that decay is inappropriate for this municipal website.

Looking for Non-Snapshot / Heightened / Artsy versions of:
Beacon Historic heritage,
Beacon's diversity,Seniors, Youth, children (especially in beacon places)happy people in the park, on the street,
Beacon parades and events, Beacon's farmer's market, Small town atmosphere, Businesses, especially with people in the photo,
Beacon's
waterfront,
Beacon sports activities (football, baseball, soccer, basketball),

Mt. Beacon,
Beacon through the seasons,
Beacon's scenic splendor (waterfalls, Fishkill Creek, the estuary path, etc.).
Beacon Holiday Decorating Contests for businesses and residents.
It would be particularly valuable (because no one is interested in doing it) to take interesting pictures of mundane themes, like
City Hall, the DMV, community centers, parks, etc. also businesses, especially
with people in the picture.

Thanks
