20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Cement Factory in a Small Town

As a kid I liked them because their massive size, as a young adult they were what supported all my male mentors, making them more sacred. As an adult , I came to realize they harm the thousands of birds seen here.
