17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Playing in Tarsus

This was taken while exploring Tarsus, Turkey. A group of children were playing and laughing in the street, and this little girl took off running ahead of her group. This picture captures the moment she realized the rest of her group wasn't catching up with her and turned to look and make sure they were following. It was a sweet, innocent moment.
