18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Staying Socially Distant

This is one of a series of shots I took of my youngest son at the beach during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. In this shot you can clearly see that the next closest person on the entire beach is about a quarter mile away, in the distant background. I felt this completely encapsulated the notion of social distancing, and thus captured the historical moment in time.
