18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Front Row Seats

I love the slow pace of life in tropical locations. You get to enjoy the simple pleasures a lot more. I took this shot of simple plastic chairs looking out over the lagoon and the moored boats at Fakarava Atoll in French Polynesia. Sometimes even a cheap plastic chair can be the best seat in the house when you have a view like this.
