14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
A Demanding Presence: the Washington Monument

The photo is depicting how an average day walking around national mall can leave you breathless when acknowledging the commanding presence the monument holds and all that it represents for the American people. Especially in a time of increased divisiveness amongst the American people, it is important to remember what our country values at our core: that of respect for all persons. The monument embodies that humility and respect.
