The Arizona Daily Star is launching a monthly Instagram photo project called #ThisIsTucson.

Your first assignment: Capture the culture of Tucson in February. 


This is the Old Pueblo's (and our photography staff's) busiest month of the year with gem show, rodeo and Match Play. Be creative and show us a sense of place.

Tag your photos with #thisistucson_feb. At the end of the month, we'll pick our favorites to share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and on our website.

Our photographers are participating alongside you on Instagram.

Here are some of our favorites so far.
