I have fun entering the photo challenges on the Rock the Shot forum. This month the photography challenge is spring. Living in the desert, it’s hard to capture some of the traditional elements you think of when you envision the season. During the month of April, I am the photographer for a fun outdoor concert event in Ahwatukee. Earlier in the month, while covering the event, I took a break to dance around and play with my kids. I noticed a bright and vivid patch of flowers and instantly thought how vibrant and spring like they looked. I of course, had my camera already strapped around my neckandwas able to coax my oldest daughter to stop dancing for a minute and give me a quick pose in the Arizona flower patch. Hesitantly, she stopped to give me a quick smile and I was able to snap a couple cute shots of her. This spot just embraces the spring here and that is why I choose it for my entry at Rock the Shot.
