21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Scheduled a photoshoot with my friend, but she rushed in, neglecting her appearance and makeup. Uncertain if intentional, I embraced the challenge, proclaiming no escape from my lens. I promised to capture her essence using sunset light on 35mm film. The resulting shot, a favorite, exposes her pure heart, childlike spirit, and elegance.
