17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Perfect combination of a waving American flag and fiery sunset sky

Well, it was a usual day. Having finished my work in the motel I came back home - place, where almost twenty young guys were having a rest after hard morning shifts in their hotels. Yes, we worked as housekeepers...and yes, it was really difficult and exciting at the same time. So, I was eating my lunch, while one of the girls, her name was Victoria, insisted on showing me one of the most beautiful places in Wildwood - North Beach. 10 minutes ago, we were riding bycicles, ready to enjoy a fantastic sunset in North Wildwood. So, we arrived right on time and started to walk around the beach, observing the golden sun setting over the town.. Suddenly, I noticed the American flag near a small pavilion and this image inspired me so much, that I decided to take photo. And yes, I was right...it was a perfect combination of the American flag, North Wildwood, the Atlantic Ocean and fabulous sunset. It was the moment I would remember for the whole life...I felt that all my efforts, all my tears and all my hard experiences were worth of this view. My American dream came true
