21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The USS Yorktown floats in the harbor

This photo of the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier was taken at the entrance of the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. I thought the contrast between such a large manmade structure with its "I Pledge Allegiance" flag and the natural environment around it with the grass and the water was striking.
