20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Smiling Louie and the Fallen Leaf

There is nothing so indicative of the American experience than walking your dog. And when your dog looks up at you with pure joy, and you can see yourself reflected in Louie’s eye, and there is a beautiful yellow leaf on the ground to complete the composition, well, nothing can be more positively a part of the American experience than that. Happy dogs is part of what is positive in the American experience.
