17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Delicious Ambiguity

This was a photo snapped at the pier in South Beach. It is depicting a particularly calm scene but ironically, is the opposite of what is behind me -- the hustle and bustle of thousands of people on the pier. The title refers to Gilda Radner's quote about life not turning out as one had planned.
