16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
"Fading Glory"

Detail of a barn door in rural Maryland. This barn and it’s iconic flag have sat next to the main road to Washington D.C. from Calvert County for many years. It has recently been threatened by development as the county’s rural character is changing. A push to have it moved has begun, but it’s fate remains uncertain.
