14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A Rose Grown From Pain

This photograph was taking during a trip to the Ground Zero Memorial Site. People leave flowers, and American flags frequently, however this rose stood tall against the background. I waited for the area to clear to snap a few quick shots.
