Family celebration, Scottsdale Civic Center, Scottsdale, Arizona

Family celebration, Scottsdale Civic Center, Scottsdale, Arizona

I photographed this family as it gathered in the park for a celebratory get-together. The purple and white balloons are the key to the nature of the event. Perhaps they are school colors, and represent a graduation? The kids seem to cluster around a toddler, while the man, the highest point of the picture, represents the parent in control of the evening. Yet the person that actually dominates this image is the woman who turns away from the group to attend to the demands of her cell phone. She is part of the celebration, but she is also quite far away at this moment.
