Plan manitou needs photos!
Plan Manitou webpage photos and graphic images
We are updating the Plan Manitou webpage for implementation. I am looking for some new images that are engaging and inspirational, and show community members at work, play and doing their thing. Sometimes it is nice to mix things up with a graphic image that is not a photo, too. Here is what I’m looking for:
Intro images for home page
Partnerships – people working together
Taking action – getting things done
Assessing progress – measuring, evaluating, assessing . . .
Photos of students working on community projects (Karen or MS teachers)
Arts & Culture
Need an engaging, colorful image – image from dance event in WAAP corridor? An arts class or artist at work?
New image to replace COG train (for now). Festival or event?
Current picture is MS stallion and view from school site. Zippier picture?
Health, Human services, food access, well being
Something vibrant – image from community market?
Muni governance and community engagement
Folks at a community event? Any images from the DCI “top chef” sign event?
Native vegetation, rainwater harvesting, community garden, creek clean up, installing a solar or other initiative. . . other ideas?
Transportation, Parking and Mobility
Image of people getting on or off bus or other alternative mode. . .
An image of the illuminated construction equipment at Adam’s Mtn Café?
PLEASE FORWARD ANY IMAGES DIRECTLY TO ME (Karen) – THANK YOU!
