19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The Runway

My oldest sister finally made it...her college graduation. The first of my siblings to make it, so naturally, my family and I had to bring multiple cameras to commemorate the day. I took to high ground, making my way to the top of the football stadium bleachers, watching over like a hawk. The day was sunny and hot, but at least I was not draped in a dark graduation gown like my sister! I took this particular photo as I was searching for my sister in a sea of homogenous caps and gowns excited to complete this major milestone.
