14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Motorcyclist at Sunset in Madison, Connecticut
This photograph is showing the relationship that travelers have with their scenery. To me, this moment is peaceful because it forces the viewer to take a moment and watch the sunset, as if they were the subject. Their is also a sense of longing in this photograph, because the viewer understands that this motorcyclist is a traveler and possible longs to travel to a space that is more desolate where he can really be alone.
