13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I was downtown Los Angeles and saw this child eating ice cream with his sister, and asked his father for permission to shoot him. The expression in his eyes was striking for a child. When viewing the image, people are unsure if it is an adult or a child, and also if it's a boy or a girl. The image captivates anyone who sees it. His face is uniquely angelic.
