17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Christmas for All

On Christmas Day, 2018, I spotted a group of Manatees from the 8th story condominium my Grandmother owns in West Palm Beach, Florida, which my family was visiting. Not having a more high-tech camera at the time, I frantically asked for my brothers assistance to capture this shot by connecting a pair of my grandfathers binoculars to the lens of my camera phone. To see others enjoying the beautiful Christmas day was truly a blessing and that the pictures captured anything but black blurs in the sea was truly a miracle.
