13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Humble Honor

I got the opportunity to experience the Changing of the Wreath and the Changing of the Guards simultaneously, when I visited the nation's capitol. This particular ceremony was presented by groups of school kids from a local grade school and local high school. Just before they were about to part-take in the Changing of the Guards, a guard turned around to fix the leading boy's tie to make sure he looked his best. I just thought it was a genuine moment captured on camera!
