Sometimes it’s nice to head out and just shoot for myself and I remember shooting this parade seven years ago for the East Valley Tribune. Full of stress of getting names, taking newspaper appropriate photographs so it was enjoyable to just go out and shoot for myself. The image above was on my way out, a little girl scout was holding a flower she just picked with her friends. There was something so nice about the children, who don’t care about staying on the sidewalk or screaming and jumping while holding little flags. There isn’t as much reason in their actions as just enjoyment of a moment and it makes them wonderful to photograph.
