18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Meeting during the pandemic

My two kids and my sister and her three year old son met for dinner in the parking lot of a restaurant during the lockdown in Illinois. I think this photo captures how families are getting together during the pandemic. Older kids and adults wearing masks, families protecting each other, following the guidelines and still being able to see each other. These are the types of pictures that people will look at like we look at the Dust Bowl pictures.
