18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Red Hood and Bethesda Angel

Days ahead, meteorologists warned NYC about a blizzard on March 21, 2018. I hoped they were right. My favorite subject is snow. On March 20, I planned my shoot through Central Park. I took test shots with the Bethesda Angel in the scene. I found my favorite angle and on the day of the storm, I waited for someone to appear in my frame and finish the composition. A woman with a red hood became the subject of my image.
