18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
'Social Distance', Venice Beach, California

The image shows a surfer paddling out in Venice beach- waiting for waves to break. I thought there was a special moment here that captured a surfer out in the wild ocean- distanced from everything and stopping time still- outside of the world afflicted with the pandemic.
