15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Botanical gardens through five year old eyes

On a warm Melbourne afternoon, the Royal Botanical Gardens was teaming with families and tourists. A little five year old boy took his Mother’s camera and explored just beyond the boundaries. He found this secret place hidden behind the bushes where the light streamed in. For just a moment, it was just him, uninterrupted, discovering beauty in a little part of his world.
