18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Dear Planet

As we continue into an unreal year, I strive to find peace within Nature. Covid providing a slight break for it, and showed it was possible while at a horrible cost, that nature can thrive again. My photography partner and I stumbled across the idea of this photoshoot by simply thinking of the media, and how the focus can often be blurry. The ground we walk on is suffering and we get consumed in the flames of politics, what category to fit into and hating each other, while we walk on such a beautiful, and wondrous planet surrounded in nature.
