12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Like Moths to a Flame

Traditional music was being played at a Chinese Moon Festival in a beautiful Chinese garden. What caught my attention was how people reacted to the lovely music and instruments being played. Some were drawn in and really listened and watched. Many others just stopped long enough to snap a photo on their phone and went on as if they needed to check another thing off their bucket list. I just snapped a few frames. I let the notes pull me in, transport me.
