20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Still Waiting

This image could represent a ghostly presence waiting even beyond death for her love to return home. However it can represent life expectations for any person of any age. We tend to ask ourselves, is this where I am meant to be, or is there something else I should be doing? It can also represent the torment of mental and emotional anguish. Is there a way out? Will the pain last forever? My hope is that this image connects to everyone on a level they can relate to.
