Prescott 19 Hotshots Memorial

Hey everyone. I need your help documenting the Hotshots Memorial across from Fire Station No. 7 on 6th Ave. As some of you may know, I am the Librarian-Archivist at the Sharlot Hall Museum and I need your help photographing the Hotshot Memorial. I went by a few days ago but my camera is not that good and can only shoot JPEG format. I know many of you have much better cameras and I was wondering if you, at some point would, go by and shoot photos of the memorial. Also, if you are planning on attending the funeral service on Tuesday, I will be glad to have those photos as well. I cannot pay anyone to do this so I am relying on your kindness to donate whatever you photographs you want to SHM. My digital archives are set up to store in TIFF format so if you can shoot in TIFF format that would be best for the digital archives. I would appreciate any donate photos or discs and your name would be listed with each of your photos and in perpetuity in the Archives. If you have any questions, please contact me at work (928)[masked] Ext. 15 - Brenda Taylor Director of Library & Archives at Sharlot Hall Museum. My cell phone is (520) 444-9961. Thanks

      Thanks Simon for helping me out. As you go through the photos make sure you have a date, place and your name associated with your photos. You can drop off the DVD at SHM Library & Archives at 115 S. McCormick Street. We are open Tuesdays through Friday 9a to 4p or you can make an appointment. Will need you to fill out some paperwork for the donation.

    I've got quite a few photos of the memorial that I took on Monday afternoon. I can convert them to tiff's, but that'll make for some pretty large files. How would you like to receive them. I can probably fit them onto a thumb drive for you. Just let me know how you'd like me to get them to you. I also have some photos I took of Sundays procession if you'd like them too, let me know.

      Great. I'll start converting the images to TIFF's and see I can burn them to a DVD. Do you want me to cull thru the images, or would you prefer to have all of them and sort thru them yourself. I'm ok either way.

      Eric - I would rather have you sort through the photos and burn the ones that you would like to donate. It would be best to have a date and place associated with the photos and of course your name. Thanks for helping me out.

    Let me add a follow up to this. This meet up is not for one particular day or time but is actually a request for over the next few days, weeks and month(s) if and when you are out shooting pictures. This is if and when you have a chance to shoot photos of the Memorial and/or the funeral services tomorrow. I will be glad to take any photos into the SHM Archives that you are willing to shoot and donate of the Memorial, the funeral services or anything regarding the Yarnell Hill Fire and the Granite Mountain Hotshots. This is not for one particular meet up time and date. When you are ready to donate pictures, please get in touch with me at (928)[masked] Ext. 14 - Sharlot Hall Museum Library & Archives. Thank you - sorry about any confusion of the earlier posting.

      That sounds good. I shot the candlelight vigil and the trucks coming back as well as the hearses and the Station 7 memorial. I'll put the better ones onto DVD as TIFFs for you.

      When you get a chance to stop by the Memorial to shoot pictures I will be glad to take whatever you would like to donate to the SHM Library & Archives. If you read the post above this is on your own time and when and if you can shoot the Memorial. No hurry as the Memorial will be up for a while. Thanks
