20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Running Man Dance

The universe works in wonderful ways. Sometimes what you need appears. This is a photo of dew drops on a rose bush in my mother's backyard. While mourning the loss of my mother (a few months earlier), I would go out to her backyard daily to meditate in the serenity of her rose garden that she loved so much. The glistening of dew drops on spider webs amidst her roses were very calming to me. I noticed this beautiful, unique dew drop formation on her rose bush one morning and immediately thought it looked like the silhouette of a person doing the "running man" dance from the 80's. This dew drop formation lifted my spirit and reminded me of the simplicity of life...and that everything would be okay.
