15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Fleurs, Aix en Provence, France

In 2015, I took a six-month sabbatical to travel through Europe, learn French, and study art and history. I stayed in 12 countries as far ranging as Ireland, Finland, Greece, and Spain. When I was in the south of France, I strolled the charming streets of Aix en Provence. I was fortunate to be there on a weekend, when fresh-cut flowers graced the farmers market. Their poppy, bright colors, and delicate chalk-drawn sign were a snapshot waiting to happen.
