17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The seating area of a small Mexican restaurant, a fixture of Los Angeles food culture. Modest yet, proud, the restaurant is immaculate. The restaurant is an empty canvas, one can only imagine the diverse assortment of people that have visited this restaurant, the conversations, and the good times shared over a meal. The restaurant is an empty canvas ready for the viewer to imagine what human experiences have transpired in this very location, despite no signs of any human presence.
