14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A busy but happy Sunday in August, Short Sands Beach, York, Maine. Version 2.

As an observer, and not a participant on this particular day, I saw so many different life vignettes playing out before me in this Sunday at the beach scenario. I could only shoot an overall shot because I was with my elderly mother, but I could see the story before and felt it could the type of image one could spend time with, and study closely. With this effect I attempted with this version to take the edge off reality while imagining scenes rendered as photography but with a more painterly feel.
