19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Chimayo Pepper Farm

Man pulls up in a beautifully restored Chevy truck at a farm that sells red peppers. I ask to take his photo and he said yes. I could tell he wasn’t terribly keen and I took it quickly.. the sun glare and the serious intention on his face made it turn out perfectly. New Mexico in October is a magical place.. the light cannot be explained.
