Up On the Sun's resident photographers were plenty busy during Viva PHX this past weekend, as were their camera. While everyone else in attendance at the downtown Phoenix music festival was busy witnessing the performances of the 70 or so bands and artists, our shutterbug staff -- including Jim Louvau, Melissa Fossum, Jeff Moses, Jessica Obert, and Benjamin Leatherman - were watching the action through their respective viewfinders and snapping away.
