14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Beginning ?

Everyone was "buckled" in, ready for the thrusters to propell us through the earths atmosphere. After this amazing journey through deep space I had become a bit nostalgic. It was over, wow, I had a hard time comprehending everything I had seen. I looked out the starboard portal andd had time for one more photo of the 4th of July fireork display from space. I choose this. Was this what it had looked like when our planet, our earth began ?
