An Easter rose

Easter was a big day for my little family this year. We’ve made a big decision to help a church get started in the downtown Phoenix area, and not only that, but we’re up and moving there to be closer to the urban area and to my full-time job.

The first meeting of Day 12 was down at the Phoenix Theater, which abuts the Phoenix Art Museum. It’s a beautiful area, and in-between both places is a courtyard with art, sculptures, towering juniper and rose bushes.

I was photographing the event and couldn’t help but notice some of the other stuff around me, in particular this flower you see above.  The rose kind of bent away from the main bush itself, setting itself apart. That created some interesting depth-of-field, plus I loved the five buds splitting off that hadn’t bloomed yet.
