14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Home away from home.

In this photo is a light house on the Jersey city pier and the NY skyline behind it. I had just recently moved to Jersey City NJ from Brooklyn NY and I finally landed a job interview. When I arrived for the interview, I had learned they gave me and the interviewer two different times, so he had left thinking I didn't show. I was Sad, so I explored my new surrounding and took this shot. I felt so close, yet so far away from what I knew, home. But this opened me up to the beautiful surroundings of my new home.
