15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Santa Monica Pier

A friend of a friend was visiting from Texas for the first time so we decided to take him out and show him Santa Monica Pier, the beach that reels in the most tourists. As we were leaving it was getting dark and all I wanted was to take the perfect sunset picture, but the sun only darkened everything, but I yet took this picture then went to review it in the car. I was amazed that I liked how the people's shadows were present.
