14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The boy and The Black Sand Beach

This photo was taken along the shore of the black sand beach in Maui hawaii. A local told me and my younger brother (the individual in the picture) that if you take a rock from this beach you will be cursed for eternity. My brother was disappointed and began to walk ahead, alone from his sadness, that is when his isolation caught my eye and I captured that moment with my camera with the picture you see before you.
