16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
between a rock and a hard place
This photo was taken in Barcelona, Spain. Pictured is a man sitting at the top of the mountain beside an abandoned war castle (Montjuic Castle) watching as the tourist passerby stare on in awe.
When looking at this person I felt him reflecting on what his country has become, a place with so much culture invaded by outsiders yet at peace because he knows the beauty of his country and can appreciate their appreciation for his home.
