18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Two girls window shopping for candy near Coney Island

As I was walking with a group of coworkers along Surf Avenue to Brooklyn's MCU Park for a baseball game, I noticed this brightly colored storefront with cotton candy hanging in the window. I was taking photos of Williams Candy Shop when two girls walked into the frame to window shop. Rather than walking away, I snapped a few more shots. There are times when unexpected people in the shot can ruin a photo and other times when it can enhance one. This was one of those times that having people in the shot made it better.
