14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photo depicts a banner hanging on the fence surrounding the former location of M's Pub in Omaha Nebraska, which burned down earlier this year.
The banner features artwork by local artists, with this particular image being taken from a sign that once hung outside a store in this building.
What struck me about this image was the many textures that are able to overlap without becoming incoherent, which adds a strange depth to a decidedly flat image.
