18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A photo of a kid enjoying the summer evening playing with sprinklers.

“Children see magic because they look for it.” — Christopher Moore Inspiration: I am always inspired by watching kids play. There is a sort of fantasy, enchantment, and unrestrained energy in them when they play and that is what I wanted to capture through this photograph of my niece playing in the backyard in the sprinklers. She is pretending here that she is a water fairy.
