19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Fluctuating travel laws and restrictions may make arrival feel like walking out of a cloud of smoke. With a general idea of where you may be, but disoriented of where your next 2 weeks may be. But as you hold on to your masks and make your way through the deplaning lines and immigration queues, your sight starts clearing up, as you resume wondering about the stories that you will be creating at your new destination. A crowd gathers at the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone. The blankets of steam become a portal of mysterious origins, gently spilling out one body at a time on our beautiful planet.
