13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A boy playing on the crumbling tombs of Fes

This photo shows one of three boys who were playing on the Merenid Tombs of Fes which overlooks the city. I was exploring the crumbling historical site when one popped his head above the highest point and proceeded to run it's entire length. Something that was so foreign and magnificent to me, was merely a playground to him. The moment was beautiful and I was able to capture it.
