18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A gathering on the beach

Taken a couple of weeks before the quarantine and shut down of many businesses and places of leisure. This image reminisces on a not-so-distant past. In a time before masks and social distancing became essential precautions for flattening the curve. We now anticipate the future in hopes of returning to a time much like this image.
