15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A woman waters her lawn in South Los Angeles.

With her Dodgers hat, her happy home, her surviving lawn, and the modest stream from her garden hose, this woman appeared to me as an image of American symmetry. Her home is in storied South Los Angeles, and she permitted me to snap a photo, even though she was concerned that it was too early in the day to water her lawn, per LA ordinance on water rationing.
