16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Capturing the capturing of beauty
As I was sitting by the rocky shores taking in the sea breeze and the view, from the corner of my eye I saw a bulky figure not taller than myself whizzing into the view. When I turned I caught a glimpse of a scene more beautiful than the one I’ve been appreciating all morning and felt greatly moved by the picture before me. It was an elderly man in an electrical wheelchair whipping out his phone to capture the panoramic view before him. So I inadvertently whipped mine out too to capture the glorious sight before me.
